Paper Abstract

Residual stool and fluid and wall collapses are problematic for virtual colonoscopy. Electronic colon cleansing techniques combining both bowel preparation and image processing were developed to segment the colon lumen from the abdominal computed tomographic (CT) images. This paper describes our bowel preparation and image segmentation techniques and presents some preliminary results. A feasibility study using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is also reported.
