Multi Planar Reconstruction (MPR) is important for diagnosis because of having all information as CT images. But it is difficult to reconstruct the MPR image along a median centerline of tubular organs (i.e., Curved Planar Reconstruction: CPR), since it isn't so accurate that the median centerline of tubular organs have been plotted manually in spite of requiring the accuracy. Therefore we have developed novel technique for simple, accurate and automatic computation based on viewing points of virtual endoscopy (Cruising Eye View: CEV) which is approximately along the median centerline of the tubular organs (i.e., CEV-CPR).
