We fused conventional 3-dimensional computed tomography (3DCT) with MPR images and POCS findings for preoperative assessment of cholangiocarcinoma. The extent of cancer was assessed using MPR images, which were plotted and fused onto 3DCT cholangiography. In addition, the results of mapping biopsy performed under POCS were marked on virtual endoscopic imaging and transferred onto a 3DCT image...
