Title: MEDICAL IMAGE REGISTRATION: REVIEW OF FUNDAMENTALS AND RECENT TOPICS
Abstract: Image registration, the task of bringing two images into spatial correspondence, is an important step in many medical image analysis problems, some of which apply to multi-modal image fusion, multi-temporal image analysis, atlas construction, and atlas-based segmentation. In this report, we will review the fundamental tools that have been proposed for registration, including interpolation methods, spatial transformation models, data similarity measures, regularization methods, and optimization techniques. We will also discuss common techniques employed in registration, including adaptive regularization and hierarchical strategies. State-of-art registration frameworks and trends that are being studied in the current literature will be presented as well.
