Paper Abstract

Currently, more sophisticated image processing operations are not used on clinical workstations or CR (computed radiography) systems. One reason for this is the excessive time required to perform the image processing. One parallelism approach for improving image processing speed is to utilize a single instruction stream - multiple data stream (SIMD) computer. This paper presents the preliminary results for two classes of image processing algorithms which are useful in radiological applications: segmentation and registration.
