An inviscid model for nonrigid image registration

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We propose an inviscid model for nonrigid image registration in a particle framework, and derive the corresponding nonlinear partial differential equations for computing the spatial transformation. Our idea is to simulate the template image as a set of free particles moving toward the target positions under applied forces. Our model can accommodate both small and large deformations, with sharper edges and clear texture achieved at less computational cost. We demonstrate the performance of our model on a variety of images including 2D and 3D, mono-modal and multi-modal images.
