Nonrigid image registration is an important, but time-consuming task in medical image analysis. In typical neuroimaging studies, multiple image registrations are performed, i.e. for atlas-based segmentation or template construction. Faster image registration routines would therefore be beneficial. In this paper we explore acceleration of the image registration package elastix by a combination of several techniques: […]

In recent years, with the development of graphics processors, graphics cards have been widely used to perform general-purpose calculations. Especially with release of CUDA C programming languages in 2007, most of the researchers have been used CUDA C programming language for the processes which needs high performance computing. In this paper, a scaling approach for […]

As a starting point of this paper we present a problem from mammographic image processing. We show how it can be formulated as an optimal control problem for PDEs and illustrate that it leads to penalty terms which are non-standard in the theory of optimal control of PDEs. To solve this control problem we use […]

Quantitative sodium magnetic resonance imaging permits noninvasive measurement of the tissue sodium concentration (TSC) bioscale in the brain. Computing the TSC bioscale requires reconstructing and combining multiple datasets acquired with a non-Cartesian acquisition that highly oversamples the center of k-space. Even with an optimized implementation of the algorithm to compute TSC, the overall processing time […]

This paper presents a fast and accurate volume correspondence matching method using 3D Phase-Only Correlation (POC). The proposed method employs (i) a coarse-to-fine strategy using multi-scale volume pyramids for correspondence search and (ii) high-accuracy POC-based local block matching for finding dense volume correspondence with sub-voxel displacement accuracy. This paper also proposes its GPU implementation to […]

We present MGPU, a C++ programming library targeted at single-node multi-GPU systems. Such systems combine disproportionate floating point performance with high data locality and are thus well suited to implement real-time algorithms. We describe the library design, programming interface and implementation details in light of this specific problem domain. The core concepts of this work […]

This paper describes FFT Cooley-Tukey algorithm implementation used in MRI image reconstruction on a revolutionary parallel computing machine, Connex Array. By taking advantage of it’s vectorial structure and processing manner, MRI image reconstruction was much faster than most of usual MRI commercial scanners. Results are remarkable. Our proposal in this paper is the use of […]

Representing uncertainty when creating visualizations is becoming more indispensable to understand and analyze scientific data. Uncertainty may come from different sources, such as, ensembles of experiments or unavoidable information loss when performing data reduction. One natural model to represent uncertainty is to assume that each position in space instead of a single value may take […]

The rapid development in information technology has immensely contributed to the use of modern approaches for visualizing volumetric data. Consequently, medical volume visualization is increasingly attracting attention towards achieving an effective visualization algorithm for medical diagnosis and pre-treatment planning. Previously, research has been addressing implementation of algorithm that can visualize 2-D images into 3-D. Meanwhile, […]

Functional brain connectivity from fMRI studies has become an important tool in studying functional interactions in the human brain as a complex network. Most recently, research has started focusing on whole brain functional networks at the voxel-level, where fMRI time-signals at each voxel are correlated with every other voxel in the brain to determine their […]

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) makes it possible to non-invasively measure brain activity with high spatial resolution. There are however a number of issues that have to be addressed. One is the large amount of spatio-temporal data that needs to be processed. In addition to the statistical analysis itself, several preprocessing steps, such as slice […]

Fast image reconstruction is a critical requirement for an imaging modality to be adopted in the field of clinical and pre-clinical sciences. While programs become faster due to more powerful hardware, at the same time data size increases and the need for advanced—and often computational more demanding—reconstruction algorithms arises. A cheap way to achieve a […]
