<p>The Scan Analysis and Visualization Processor (Scan/VP), a flexible, portable, Unix-based software package for visualizing and analyzing positron emission tomography (PET) images in a clinical-research setting, is described. PET systems are compared to computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The imaging and software aspects of Scan/VP, and procedures devoted specifically to functional PET imaging, including mathematical modeling, image registration, regional thresholding, and derivation of regional covariation patterns, are discussed. Basic surface display, animation, and stereo techniques for visualizing variations in metabolic topology and underlying disease patterns are also discussed.</p>
