Integrated presentation of multimodal brain images.

Author information

  • 1Computer Vision Research Group, University Hospital Utrecht, The Netherlands.


This article discusses the fusion of brain images from multiple modalities as well as the presentation of the integrated image information. The paper has three parts. First, individual brain imaging modalities are compared as regards clinical appreciation, invasiveness, dimensionality, spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and cost. Next, methods to combine multiple images are briefly surveyed and collated by characteristics as accuracy, patient-friendliness, reproducibility, labour-extensiveness, feasibility of retrospective matching, and general applicability. Finally, techniques to display multimodal image information are outlined and examples of the various options for integrated presentation are shown.
