    Abstract

    The advancements in medical technologies have allowed more accurate diagnosis and quantitative assessments. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the most effective and critical technologies in modern diagnosis. However, preprocessing tasks are required to perform various research topics basing on MR image. Registration is one of the those preprocessing tasks. In this research, a semi-automatic utility was developed for doing MRI registration of small animals. It focuses on 2D rigid body registration. The test results show that this developed utility can perform registration well for MRI of small animals in both intra-subject and inter-subjects.
