Abstract
A method is presented for the accurate combination of magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomographic (CT) images of the head. Our technique is based on user identified 3D landmarks followed by data combination and display as adjacent slices, a single fused slice representation, colour overlay and three-dimensional (3D) rendered scenes. Validation with a point phantom and computer simulation has established the relationship of registration accuracy with point location accuracy, the number of points used and their spatial distribution. The technique is in clinical use in the planning of skull base surgery, transferring MR images acquired without a stereotaxic frame to stereotaxic space, and staging and planning therapy of nasopharyngeal tumours
