Last time, we took a brief stroll through the timeline of radiology to take a look at the relationship between the evolution of imaging technologies and corresponding development in medical image registration. Digital radiology took root with the clinical introduction of CT in 1971, and despite the introduction of clinical MRI in 1980, it wasn’t until PET came of age in the early 1990s that the utility of image registration became plainly evident. Today we’ll dig into a couple of the early algorithms.

Have you ever wondered how far we’ve come in image registration technology? It wasn’t always the case that 3D deformable registration could be fully automated. This week, we’re throwing it back to 1895, when medical imaging started, then we’ll go back to the future to see how medical image registration evolved.
