    We have developed an interactive virtual angioscopy tool that takes as input data acquired with standard medical imaging modalities and regards it as a virtual environment to be interactively inspected. The system supports real-time navigation with stereoscopic direct volume rendering and dynamic endoscopic camera control, interactive tissue classification, and interactive point picking for morphological feature measurement. This video-tape illustrates our approach with interactive sequences showing the examination of stent that has been placed in a human popliteal artery.
