Cross modality image processing in cardiac and spinal images

With the advances of medical imaging, accurate diagnosis has been significantly enhanced, especially when utilizing cross-modality imaging for complicated diagnoses such as the spine and cardiovascular system. However, cross modality image processing poses a challenge due to large amount of data generated. Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) images, for example, have great capacity for screening, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiac and spinal diseases.
