likely to become of increasing importance in the new millenium.
This book provides an in-depth evaluation of the technical aspects
of virtual endoscopy, and detailed information on indications,
implementation, and interpretation in a clinical setting. It is
designed to support radiologists and educators in approaching this
rapidly developing field, and will assist consumers in judging the
