Abstract

Endoscopic visualization of the internal surface of hollow organ systems is widely used in medical practice. Examples include endoscopy of the urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, and upper and lower respiratory tracts. Although valuable for visualizing the internal anatomy, a limitation of endoscopy has been the inability, to date, to easily quantify internal dimensions during these examinations. Such objective measurements would be particularly valuable in understanding the behavior of the human airway.
