We have implemented and validated an algorithm for three-dimensional positron emission tomography transmission-to-computed tomography registration in the chest, using mutual information as a similarity criterion. Inherent differences in the two imaging protocols produce significant nonrigid motion between the two acquisitions. A rigid body deformation(More)
PURPOSE Image localization of head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma lags behind current techniques to deliver a precise radiation dose with intensity-modulated radiotherapy. This pilot study prospectively examined the use of registered 18-F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/CT for preradiotherapy staging of the neck. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND 2-deoxy-2[(18)F]fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging can be registered with CT images and can potentially improve neck staging sensitivity and specificity in patients with head and neck squamous cell cancer. The intent of this study was to examine the use of registered FDG-PET/CT imaging to guide head and neck intensity(More)
Two groups of head injury clients (oriented and non-oriented) and a group of non-disabled participants were compared on response consistency to a MMPI test. Over three testing sessions it was found that the non-oriented head injury group had the most inconsistent responses followed by the oriented head injury group and the control group. Though six of the(More)
