A method has been developed for constructing an accurate three-dimensional textured surface from an endoscopic video, and for transferring information from the reconstruction onto images gathered through other modalities such as computed tomography (CT). This technology facilitates more efficient and thorough review by clinicians and researchers and has demonstrated usefulness in planning radiotherapy for throat cancer and improving colonoscopic screening. The generalizability of the system to other organs in the body also increases its potential.
