Paper Abstract

Virtual bronchoscopy reconstructions of the airway noninvasively provide useful morphologic information of structural abnormalities such as stenoses and masses. To date, virtual bronchoscopy has been mainly applied to the central airways. In this paper, we show how virtual bronchoscopy can be applied to more peripheral airways by making use of the capabilities of a multi-slice helical CT scanner.
