I am working with a design to a novel PET scanner, and I need a way to register 3d patient scans with a 3d design of the scanner. Head and neck cancer patients come in and get CT scans, and those scans are sent to me to see if our scanner can accommodate the patient, as our scanner has higher resolution. I need an automated system that can take a CT image and map it into the model, and make sure that the tumors are in the field of view of the scanner, without the patients shoulders running into the scanner. Also, it would need to be able to warp the CT scans to be able to take into account that the neck can be put into a different position to get the tumor into the field of view. I am a student, so I have some cursory knowledge of MATLAB, but I have no background in image processing. Any help would be much appreciated.
