In this work, we perform a comparison between the spatial normalization of [123I]FP-CIT SPECT brain images when a FP-CIT SPECT and a MRI template are used. A 12-parameters affine registration model is calculated by the optimization of a sum of squares cost function. When the images are registered to a FP-CIT template, the intersubject variation is found to be lower than when the MRI template is used, specially in the striatum, which is the most relevant part of the brain in FP-CIT SPECT brain images.
