What escapes unseen with traditional Coloscopy?
In first part of the above movie, all seen surfaces are marked in white, so
that in the second part (after turning around) you can see which parts
were not seen.
Automatic detection of polyps in the colon
It is very important for the prevention of colorectal cancer to detect
polyps in an early stage, as they can be predecessors of tumors.
Eccet/ColoTux can automatically detect polypoidal structures in the colon
and colorize them, allowing for easy spotting when flying through the colon.
The algorithm is very robust and finds even small polyps.
Simple graphical user interface
The user interface of ColoTux has been reduced to the essential controls
while still showing all original data, a 3D reconstruction and (on demand)
an outside view.
Flying under water
Using contrast agents it is even possible to provide views of partially
Outer view of a colon with diverticles
Diverticle as shown in ColoTux
High resolution Movies
Using Colotux you can render high definition pictures for documentation
purposes or even render whole movies.
Coloscopy simulation monitor
Eccet can be used to monitor simulated coloscopy on an instrumented phantom.
