The benefit of registration and fusion of functional images with anatomical images is well appreciated in the advent of PET/CT. There is an increasing interest in expanding this approach to PET/MRI. The focus of much of the related research has been on registering images from different modalities. However, the importance of appropriately jointly displaying (i.e. fusing) the registered images has often been neglected and underestimated. Our aim is to determine which fusion techniques are most… CONTINUE READING
