Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PERFORMING A THREE-DIMENSIONAL VIRTUAL EXAMINATION OF OBJECTS, SUCH AS INTERNAL ORGANS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'EXECUTION D'UN EXAMEN VIRTUEL TRIDIMENSIONNEL D'OBJETS TELS QUE DES ORGANES INTERNES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods for generating a three-dimensional visualization image of an object, such as an internal organ, using volume visualization techniques are provided. The techniques includes a multi-scan imaging method; a multi-resolution imaging method; and a method for generating a skeleton of a complex three dimension object. The applications include virtual cystoscopy, virtual laryngoscopy, virtual angiography, among others.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés de production d'une image de visualisation tridimensionnelle d'un objet, tel qu'un organe interne, au moyen de techniques de visualisation des volumes. Ces techniques comprennent un processus d'imagerie mettant en oeuvre plusieurs dispositifs d'exploration, un processus d'imagerie à plusieurs résolutions, ainsi qu'un processus de production d'un squelette d'un objet complexe en trois dimensions. Des applications de l'invention comprennent, entre autres, la cystoscopie virtuelle, la laryngoscopie virtuelle et l'angiographie virtuelle.
