BrainVoyager QX v2.8

Fine-Tuning Alignment (FA) Step

The fine-tuning alignment step can be performed in different ways:

The two automatic FA versions are described in the next topic. The third approach is descriebed below.

Manual adjustment of rotation, translation and scale parameters

If the automatic fine-tuning does not work as desired, the coregistration might be improved by manually adjusting the rotation and translation parameters. If this step is performed after the initial alignment, the effect of changing the respective transformation values are intuitive and can be learned quickly. If this step would be performed prior to intial alignment, one would have to find large displacements and rotations making it difficult to handle this problem. Besides facilitating manual alignment in this way, QX also uses improved visualization tools to judge the alignment showing the three major orientation views for both the source and the target data set. It also allows to enter floating point values in the translation and scale parameter fields to allow obtaining optimal results.
