DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] the algorithms were not fully automatic and required manual adjustments. Since January 2008, our nuclear medicine department has been clinically evaluating a new software tool (Volumetrix Suite; GE Healthcare) that incorporates a fully automatic rigid registration algorithm into our image-processing workstation and also enables the creation of dual-modality, fused, 3-dimensional, volume rendered images. Furthermore, an additional advantage of the 3-dimensional visualization of fused volume datasets was the fact that the clinical findings were easily visible to clinicians not used to SPECT data interpretation. Because the implemented algorithm is rigid, some misregistration could not be avoided, especially if the patient could not be positioned identically in the 2 examinations to be registered (e.g., different arm positions).
