Parallel Non-Rigid Registration

A near real-time web-service that relies on an efficient and fault-tolerant distributed library (developed in collaboration with our colleagues at Harvard Medical School and INRIA), for non-rigid registration of brain MR images. This software, for the first time in clinical practice (on 8th of November 2005), was used to complete (on several clusters with about 150 nodes at W&M) the non-rigid registration between pre-operative MRI and fMRI and intra-operative MRI during an open brain surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). During the last year this work was used routinely (at least once a month) at BWH for clinical studies. The results of these activities are presented in NeuroImage, IEEE/ACM SC06.
