This paper presents the design and implementation of a parallel two-dimensional/three-dimensional (2-D/3-D) image registration method for computer-assisted surgery. Our method exploits data and speculative parallelism, aiming at making computation time short enough to carry out registration tasks during surgery. Our experiments show that exploiting both parallelisms reduces computation time on a cluster of 64 PCs from a few tens of minutes to less than a few tens of seconds
