  • Automated polyp detector for CT colonography: Feasibility study RADIOLOGY Summers, R. M., Beaulieu, C. F., Pusanik, L. M., Malley, J. D., Jeffrey, R. B., Glazer, D. I., Napel, S. 2000; 216 (1): 284-290


    An abdominal computed tomographic scan was modified by inserting 10 simulated colonic polyps with use of methods that closely mimic the attenuation, noise, and polyp-colon wall interface of naturally occurring polyps. A shape-based polyp detector successfully located six of the 10 polyps. When settings that enhanced the edge profile of polyps were chosen, eight of 10 polyps were detected. There were no false-positive detections. Shape analysis is technically feasible and is a promising approach to automated polyp detection.
