A method for the non-rigid, multi-modal, registration of volumetric scans of human hands is presented. PET and MR scans are aligned by optimising the configuration of a tube based model using a set of Bayesian networks. Efficient optimisation is performed by posing the problem as a\ud multi-scale, local, discrete (quantised) search, and using dynamic programming. The method is to be used within a project to study the use of high-resolution HIDAC PET imagery in investigating bone growth and erosion in arthritis.\ud
