Two information. extraction methods were applied to selected diagnostic medical images obtained from different imaging. modalities. Sample images consisted of magnetic resonance tomograms, transmission computed tomograms, and emission computed tomograms of patients with focal and generalized brain abnormalities. Color composite analysis applied to image pairs afforded a limited but potentially useful approach to enable rapid, objective. depiction of relative and absolute contribu-tions from dualmodality parameters. Cluster analysis applied to image pairs or triplets was computationally more demanding, but this approach afforded a method for objective classification of tissues that could be generalized. Technical problems arise from patient factors and machine factors. Patient factors include motion and positioning. Machine factors include resolution, orientation, format, registration and scaling.
