Paper Abstract

In the field of medical imaging the demand for panoramic imaging arises when imaging of human body cavities is of concern, i.e., in the case of endoscopy, since at present the endoscope has to be rotated around its optical axis to get a full 360° image of the entire wall of the body cavity to be investigated. Existing panoramic imaging techniques are not suitable for this purpose, and proposed holographic techniques fall short of doctors' expectations. The scope of this presentation is to review various panoramic imaging modalities, and to introduce a new imaging block which is not only suitable for panoramic endoscopy but which can also be used to re-project the recorded panoramic image onto a ring-shaped screen.
