21 May 2001 Interactive navigation for PC-based virtual colonscopy
Author Affiliations +
Virtual colonoscopy on powerful workstations has the distinct advantage of interactive navigation, as opposed to passive viewing of cine loops or pre-computed movies. Because of the prohibitive cost of hardware, only passive displays have been feasible for the wide-scale deployment required for mass screening. The purpose of our work is to compare low-cost commodity hardware as an effective tool for interactive colonographic navigation versus the expensive workstations.
