Abstract This project is carried out as a part of the ongoing research carried out by Ph.D. student Oline V. Olesen at Rigshospitalet, DTU IMM and Siemens Healthcare, to develop a new structured light 3D tracking system. The tracking system is developed to remedy the problem that occurs when producing PET images where patient movements are damaging for the image quality, which especially applies to high resolution PET scanners. The special dedicated brain scanner, High Resolution Research Tomography (HRRT) has a resolution down to 1.4 mm. Serious errors may therefore occur on high resolution PET brain images, if no corrections for patient head movements are performed. Head movements lead to degradation of image-quality especially during long acquisitions. The main objective of this project is to develop a program which enables the handling of this structured light 3D tracking system, which involves handling of machine vision cameras, a DLP pico projector and achieving synchronization between the cameras and projector. Furthermore the developed program needs to enable the possibility of running real-time 3D tracking.
