In-vivo image-based multi-spectral images have typical problems in image acquisition, registration, visualization and analysis. As its spatial and spectral axes do not have the same unit, standard image algorithms often do not apply. The image size is often so large that it is hard to analyze them interactively. In a clinical setting, image motion will always occur during the acquisition times up to 30 seconds, since most (elderly) patients often have difficulty to retain their poses. In this paper, we discuss how the acquisition, registration, display and analysis can be optimized for in-vivo multi-spectral images.
