Advancing the digital twin method

Type: Project

Status: finished

Supervisors: Maximilian Reymann

The aim of this research project was to develop a program that registers an XCAT phantom to a CT scan with a rigid and a non-rigid registration. The registered XCAT Phantom can be used to perform SPECT experiments and simulations without burdening the patient with an additional SPECT examination. To perform the registration the open source software Plastimatch version 1.8.0 was used. The results of the registration were evaluated visually and empirically. The registration was successful in most of the cases, but there were some cases where the rigid registration direction failed.
