Methods for polyp detection in colonoscopy videos: a review

  • Colonoscopy is one of the best methods for screening colon cancer. As the automatic detection of polyps in endoscopic images is a challenging task for image processing, a variety of research groups have proposed methods that try to fulfill this task to develop a system which supports the doctors during examination. However, the problem is still "at least partially" not solved. This paper gives a summary of 16 different polyp detection methods published in the last ten years. We found out that the major draw-back of many approaches is the lack of representative video data, which hinders comparison and evaluation of the published methods.
