Abstract

A method for the registration of biomedical images, based on the calculation of the cross-correlation function (CCF) between two corresponding images, was implemented. The method was applied to positron emission tomography (PET), scanning PET (SPET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computerized tomography (CT) studies in normal and pathological conditions. PET, SPET, and CT images, after CCF registration, are shown for a patient affected by a cerebrovascular disorder. The CCF registration method is proved to be a fast and clinically useful technique for the integration of biomedical images.
