Image Fusion

Image Fusion provides a dedicated evaluation software for spatial alignment (matching) and visualization of image data either from different modalities (CT, MR, NM, PET) or from the same modality but from multiple examinations of the same patient. It supports optimal diagnostic outcome (fusion of morphological and functional information) and therapy planning. CT, MR, NM or PET images are accepted as input for image fusion.

Features & Benefits


  • Dual modality applications like MR&PET or CT&MR by combining the 3D data sets with alpha blending
  • Combination of functional and morphological information
  • Up to 4 data sets can be fused.

Clinical Applications

Combination of functional information and excellent anatomical data to improve diagnostic accuracy. Eg: MapIt results combined with MR joint images.


Additional Information

Registration Algorithms: Easy-to-use visual alignment with 6 degrees of freedom (3x translation, 3x rotation). Landmark-based registration with convenient landmark edit for point-based registration using anatomical landmarks. Automatic registration. Storage of transformation matrix after registration for later retrieval with data sets.

Visualization Techniques: side-by-side visualization of both data sets with correlated pointer and correlated scrolling with dog ears. 2D alpha-blending in monochrome or pseudo-color with adjustable balance between the two superimposed data sets. Storage of fused results as secondary capture images.
