PFUS organizes the available tasks on different pages which are explained in the sections below.
The contents of the Fusion pages differs based on the Configuration settings.
Two options are available:
1.The Default Matching Layout: the user is guided step by step through the matching process and can extract optimal results from multi-modal images even in the most challenging situations met in human or preclinical research. Additionally, the user can take advantage of automatic species recognition. The correct species setting is essential for suitable registration defaults.
2.The Combine Matching Layout: long term PMOD Fusion users were very familiar with the legacy appearance of the Fusion interface. Therefore with the dedicated box enabled in the local configuration the matching initialization, configuration and results preview steps are available through a single page.
The advantage of the Default Matching Layout as compared to the Combined Matching Layout are as follows:
•Supports the automatic species recognition based on the image volumes as defined in the local PFUS Configuration.
•Implements species-sensitive cropping facility both for the Input and the Reference images.
•Supports the markers matching workflow.
•Supports the already matched workflow applicable for images from hybrid acquisitions, images like parametric maps derived from a common data set, or images arising in a standard template space.
•Implements the Dual reference strategy for the Motion correction workflow.
The two layouts share the same IMAGE ALGEBRA sub-page, VOI ANALYSIS sub-page, Comparison page, MIP page, Task bar and Status bar.
