Abstract

A computer method has been developed to compensate for patient motion which degrades nuclear medicine renal dynamic studies. The method is based on a fast correlation algorithm which accomplishes decoupling of the registration variables translation, rotation and scaling, and converts rotations into cyclic shifts using polar transformations of the images in the Fourier domain. The method has been implemented into a fully automated program.
