Motion Correction (MoCo)

Overview

MoCo is an application for the automatic and manual correction of SPECT acquisition motion artifacts. Pattern matching and segmentation algorithms are used in conjunction to minimize motion error metrics over the set of acquired projections; the resulting motion corrected projections are then presented to the operator for validation or modification.
