A simple registration technique based on the use of external fiducial markers attached to the skin surface has been developed. The authors describe the technical development and initial clinical evaluation of this technique applied to the interpretation of nuclear medicine bone scans of the wrist using X-rays, and the interpretation of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) perfusion images of the brain using either the patient's own magnetic resonance images (MRIs), if available, or alternatively, a MRI-derived 3-D neuro-anatomical atlas. The registration techniques have an accuracy appropriate to the resolution of the nuclear medicine modalities. Preliminary clinical evaluations have demonstrated that these techniques assist the diagnostic process, by improving the accuracy of localization, and potentially provide means of quantification.
