Peripheral arterial occlusive disease can be treated with endovascular interventions. These interventions are currently intraoperatively guided by fluoroscopy. A possible alternative is low-field (LF) MRI, but the current image quality of LF-MRI may not be sufficient. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the possibility of image fusion of LF-MRI with preoperative MRA to improve the image quality. To test this, LF-MRI and 3T MRI images were made of a healthy test subject. These images were registrated using manual landmark detection. The result was a visually successful registration image of LF-MRI and anatomical MRI, which shows the possibility of manual image registration.
