[A new mixing rigid-elastic multiresolution algorithm for medical image registration].Nan Fang Yi Ke Da Xue Xue Bao. 2006 May; 26(5):587-90, 593.NF
We present a new mixing rigid-elastic multiresolution algorithm for medical image registration from global registration to local registration in sequence. The global registration is achieved by the method of affine transformation composed of B spline, which knots are the four vertexes of the medical image. When increasing the number of the knots of the B spline along the X and Y axis, the transformation function will be more complex and "elastic", which can complete the elastic aligning for the detail of the medical image. The results of experiment demonstrated that the presented algorithm was more robust than the previous elastic algorithm of registration.
