MRI Registration for Neurosurgery
This application uses non-linear registration to correct for the
brain shift phenomenon encountered with image-guided surgical planning.
Functional MRI information obtained pre-operatively can then be shown
in the correct position relative to the intra-operative anatomical MRI scan.
The availability of this service is required in real-time during surgery,
and results must be returned by the Grid as fast as possible,
at least within ten minutes.
A demo (AVI, 12.6 MB) (Windows version)
shows the process in more detail.
