Mapping of PET images with CT or MR has a very high potential for clinical applications. A crucial step in the mapping process is the registration of two sets of 3D image data. This work demonstrates a technique for real-time alignment of a 3D image set based on parallel processors and a high bandwidth data transporter. The rapid response afforded by this hardware makes it feasible to visually align two image sets by adjusting the angle and depth of cutting planes along a tilted axis in a trial and error manner.
