I have pictures of an oesophagus (ie a tube) taken under standard white light looking down the tube. I have about 10 images taken over 20cm in series. The image looks forward down into the tube and examples can be found here. Each image is taken serially down the tube at the same session and the centre is positioned largely the same in all the pictures. I would like to be able to combine these images into one (I guess 3D cylinder) in order to then create a flat 2D surface image of the surface lining the tube. Is this possible?

  • $\begingroup$ I assume you mean that you would like to "cut" the tube and flatten it. Do you wonder how to project points of the images into a single 2D image? $\endgroup$ – Moti Mar 21 '16 at 6:32
  • $\begingroup$ Thinking about it I suppose its two questions 1. Is it possible to create a 3D image of a cylinder from several 2D images and 2. How to then project the points of the cylinder cut down its y axis onto a single 2D image $\endgroup$ – Sebastian Zeki Mar 21 '16 at 14:27
