PMOD Fuse It Tool (PFUSEIT)
PFUSIT is PMOD's second-generation image registration and fusion tool. Its purpose is to bring images into a common coordinate space where they can be post-processed in different ways.
Depending on the data to be processed, a user is guided in a workflow through the image registration process, so that the procedure is as convenient as possible and the results reproducible. The following types of image registration are available:
- manual, interactive alignment by shifting and rotating the images;
- automatic alignment using different image comparison methodologies;
- SPM-type elastic deformation to template images;
- motion correction of dynamic series;
- registration based on user-defined anatomical or fiducial landmarks.
Once the images are spatially aligned, there are various ways of post-processing supported:
- different variants of fusing the registered images;
- saving fused images in JPEG/TIFF or as DICOM secondary capture images;
- pixel-wise image algebra of registered images;
- volume-of-interest definition directly in fused images;
- scatter plots of corresponding pixel values in 2 (2D plot) or 3 (3D plot, optional) matched images;
- rotating MIP (Maximum Intensity Projection) images of up to three fused images.
