Evaluation of an edge-based registration method: application to magnetic resonance first-pass myocardial perfusion data.

PURPOSE Quantification of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) myocardial perfusion remains time consuming since it requires manual interventions to compensate for motion. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate a semiautomated registration method. MATERIALS AND METHODS A rigid edge-based registration algorithm was applied on 10 patients who had rest and… CONTINUE READING
