According to recent dental literature, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has proven to be exceptional at providing images of an implant patient's interproximal bone loss. During the process of the CBCT, several scans are taken instead of just one. However, the current technology used in the CBCT process does not allow identical images to be taken due to the position change of the neck placement on the scanner's neck holder. Additionally, the presence of an affordable software for CBCT image registration is rare. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is designed for image registration using Matlab for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM). The resulting GUI allows users to preview the frames in all three directions and filter them before registration. The 2-D-registration can be done in either of four transformation methods, and the user can observe the accuracy of each method by comparing the errors. The registered 2-D image can be saved as a Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image. Additionally, in 3-D registration, slice numbers can be changed in each direction for better understanding of the registration of the fixed image and the moving image.
