Abstract

A software procedure dedicated to the integration of biomedical images on a low-cost large-diffusion workstation has been developed. Tomographic images generated by means of positron emission tomography, single photon emission tomography, magnetic resonance, and X-ray computed tomography have been decoded and converted to a standard format. Image display and image processing can be performed. Noise reduction and parameter extraction algorithms have been designed. In particular, a multimodal image correlation technique has been implemented, allowing the superimposition of corresponding images obtained with the different techniques and the enhancement of particular regions of interest.
