Abstract

Recently there has emerged a need to compute multimodal non-rigid registrations in a lot of clinical applications. To date, the viscous fluid algorithm is perhaps the most adept method at recovering large local mis-registrations that exist between two images. However, this model can only be used on images from the same modality as it assumes similar intensity values between images. This paper presents a solution to this problem by proposing a hybrid non-rigid registration using the viscous fluid algorithmand mutual information. The mutual information is incorporated via the use of a block matching procedure to generate a sparse deformation field which drives the viscous fluid algorithm. Although successful, the hybrid approach suffers from interpolation artifacts which prevent sub-voxel deformations and limit the accuracy of the algorithm.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
