Paper Abstract

Virtual Medicine is an emerging and challenging field in Computer Graphics. Numerous visualization methods are used to model and render data of different modalities. In recent years, Virtual Endoscopy has become a very popular areas in Virtual Medicine. Different approaches address various applications like colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, or angiography. In this paper, we present an endoscopy system for Virtual Endoscopy of the ventricular system inside the human brain. The main purpose of this system is to provide support for the planning of complicated endoscopic interventions inside of the ventricular system.
