Abstract

We propose a multimodal endoscopic system based on white light (WL), multispectral (MS), and photometric stereo (PS) imaging for the examination of colorectal cancer (CRC). Recently, the enhancement of the diagnostic accuracy of CRC colonoscopy has been reported; however, tumor diagnosis for a variety of lesion types remains challenging using current endoscopy. In this study, we demonstrate that our developed system can simultaneously discriminate tumor distributions and provide three-dimensional (3D) morphological information about the colon surface using the WL, MS, and PS imaging modalities. The results demonstrate that the proposed system has considerable potential for CRC diagnosis.
