DTHB3D_Reg: Dynamic Truncated Hierarchical B-Spline Based 3D Nonrigid Image RegistrationMS47

We present a robust approach to perform 3D nonrigid image registration suitable for large deformation and develop a software named DTHB3D_Reg. The optimum spatial transformation, defined using truncated hierarchical B-splines, is obtained through the minimization of an energy functional. An adaptive strategy carries out refinement only in the regions with large deformation. The proposed method is demonstrated on medical images to show robustness on topology change as compared to other image registration methods.
