Post-processing methods that can non-linearly register diffusion-weighted EPI data to high-resolution images are useful in the context of clinical protocols. The current research attempts to apply currently available registration methods to rapidly perform such registration. Investigations on healthy subjects show that an appropriately generated target image allows good quality registration to be performed even with freely available software. This is useful for example to provide cortical seeds for diffusion tractography.
