Description In cancer treatment organ and tissue deformation betweenradiotherapy sessions represent a significant challenge to op-timal planning and delivery of radiation doses. Recent de-velopments in image guided radiotherapy has caused a soundrequest for more advanced approaches for image registrationto handle these deformations. Viscous-fluid registration isone such deformable registration method. A drawback withthis method has been that it has required computation timesthat were too long to make the approach clinically appli-cable. With recent advances in programmability of graph-ics hardware, complex user defined calculations can now beperformed on consumer graphics cards (GPUs). This pa-per demonstrates that the GPU can be used to drasticallyreduce the time needed to register two medical 3D imagesusing the viscous-fluid registration method. This facilitatesan increased incorporation of image registration in radio-therapy treatment of cancer patients, potentially leading tomore efficient treatment with less severe side effects.
