UNLABELLED Intra- or intersubject registration of anatomically poorly defined SPECT data, such as in neuroreceptor imaging, is important for longitudinal or group analysis. However, accurate registration is difficult with only emission CT (ECT) data. We investigated fully automated registration using transmission CT (TCT) data as an intermediary image set. METHODS The accuracy of TCT registration was compared to that of ECT registration for four types of data: gray-matter distribution (with… CONTINUE READING
