Summary
Objective: The goal of this work is to improve the usability of a non-rigid registration
software for medical images.
Method: In order to use the interactivity of a visualization workstation and the computing
power of a cluster, we have build a registration grid service. On the user side, the system is
composed of a graphical interface that interacts in a complex and fluid manner with the
registration software running on a remote cluster.
Conclusion: Although the transmission of images back and forth between the computer
running the user interface and the cluster running the registration service adds to the total
registration time, it provides a user-friendly way of using the registration software without
heavy infrastructure investments in hospitals. The system exhibits good performances even if
the user is connected to the grid service through a low throughput network such as a wireless
