Abstract

Virtual endoscopy is a new-generation technique which combines the features of endoscopic viewing and cross-sectional volumetric imaging. In the evaluation of gastrointestinal cancers, virtual endoscopy has been most commonly used in colorectal carcinomas and to a much lesser extent in gastric carcinomas. In this review, the current status of virtual colonoscopy was reviewed together with a brief discussion of virtual gastroscopy. (C) 2002 Published by Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
