  • Due to the development of medical imaging technology, different imaging technologies provide a large amount of effective information. However, different imaging method caused the limitations of information integrity by using single type of image. Combining different image together so that doctor can obtain the information from medical image comprehensively. Image registration algorithm based on mutual information has become one of the hotspots in the field of image registration with its high registration accuracy and wide applicability. Because the information theory-based registration technology is not dependent on the gray value difference of the image, and it is very suitable for multimodal medical image registration. However, the method based on mutual information has a robustness problem. The essential reason is that the mutual information itself is not have enough information between the pixel pairs, so that the mutual information is unstable during the registration process. A large number of local extreme values are generated, which finally cause mismatch. In order to overcome the shortages of mutual information registration method, this paper proposes a registration method combined with image spatial structure information and mutual information.

  • With the development of medical imaging technology, image registration has been widely used in the field of disease diagnosis. The registration between different modal images of brain magnetic resonance (MR) is particularly important for the diagnosis of brain diseases. However, previous registration methods don't take advantage of the prior knowledge of bilateral brain symmetry. Moreover, the difference in gray scale information of different modal images increases the difficulty of registration. In this paper, a multimodal medical image registration method based on image segmentation and symmetric self-similarity is proposed. This method uses modal independent self-similar information and modal consistency information to register images. More particularly, we propose two novel symmetric self-similarity constraint operators to constrain the segmented medical images and convert each modal medical image into a unified modal for multimodal image registration. The experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively reduce the error rate of brain MR multimodal medical image registration with rotation and translation transformations (average 0.43mm and 0.60mm) respectively, whose accuracy is better compared to state-of-the-art image registration methods.

  • This paper focuses on automatic image registration between EO (Electro-Optical) and IR (InfraRed) satellite images with different spectral properties using block-based approach and simple preprocessing technique to enhance the performance of feature matching. If unpreprocessed EO and IR images from Kompsat-3A satellite were applied to local feature matching algorithms(Scale Invariant Feature Transform, Speed-Up Robust Feature, etc.), image registration algorithm generally failed because of few detected feature points or mismatched pairs despite of many detected feature points. In this paper, we proposed a new image registration method which improved the performance of feature matching with block-based registration process on 9-divided image and pre-processing technique based on adaptive histogram equalization. The proposed method showed better performance than without our proposed technique on visual inspection and I-RMSE. This study can be used for automatic image registration between various images acquired from different sensors.

  • We investigated the mean and variance of the MSE and the MI-based image registration methods that have been widely applied for image registration. By using the first order Taylor series expansion, we have approximated the mean and the variance for one-dimensional image registration. The asymptotic results show that the MSE based method is unbiased and efficient for the same image registration problem while the MI-based method shows larger variance. However, for the different modality image registration problem, the MSE based method is largely biased while the MI based method still achieves registration. The results imply that the MI based method achieves robustness to the different image modalities at the cost of inefficiency. The analytical results are supported by simulation results.

  • This paper is proposed a wavelet-based MCDT(Mask Coefficient Differential and Threshold) method of image registration of Multi-images contaminated with visible image and infrared image. The method for ensure reliability of the image registration is to the increase statistical corelation as getting the common feature points between two images. The method of threshold the wavelet coefficients using derivatives of the wavelet coefficients of the detail subbands was proposed to effectively registration images with distortion. And it can define that the edge map. Particularly, in order to increase statistical corelation the method of the normalized mutual information. as similarity measure common feature between two images was selected. The proposed method is totally verified by comparing with the several other multi-image and the proposed image registration.

  • Registering different kinds of clinical images widely used in diagnostic and surgery planning. However, cause of tumor growth or effected by gravity, human tissue has plenty of non-rigid deformation with clinically. Non-rigid registration allows the mapping of straight lines to curves. Therefore, such local deformation makes registration more complicated. In this work, we mainly introduce intra-subject, inter-modality registration. This paper mainly studies the nonlinear registration method of 2D medical image registration. The general medical image registration algorithm requires manual intervention, and cost long registration time. In our work to reduce the registration time in rough registration step, the barycenter and the direction of main axis of the image is calculated, which reduces the calculation amount compared with the method of using mutual information.

  • Image registration is the process for finding the correct geometrical transformation that brings one image in precise spatial correspondence with another image. There are limitations on the visualization of simple overlay between two different modality images because two different modality images have different anatomical information, resolution, and viewpoint. In this paper, various image registration methods and their applications are introduced. With the recent advance of medical imaging device, image registration is used actively in diagnosis support, treatment planning, surgery guidance and monitoring the disease progression.

  • Purpose: The brain perfusion SPECT is the examination which is able to know adversity information related brain disorder. But brain perfusion SPECT has also high failure rates by patient's motions. In this case, we have to use two days method and patients put up with many disadvantages. We think that we don't use two days method in brain perfusion SPECT, if we can use registration method. So this study has led to look over registration method applications in brain perfusion SPECT. Materials and Methods: Jaszczak, Hoffman and cylindrical phantoms were used for acquiring SPECT image data on varying degree in x, y, z axes. The phantoms were filled with $^{99m}Tc$ solution that consisted of a radioactive concentration of 111 MBq/mL. Phantom images were acquired through scanning for 5 sec long per frame by using Triad XLT9 triple head gamma camera (TRIONIX, USA). We painted the ROI of registration image in brain data. So we calculated the ROIratio which was different original image counts and registration image counts. Results: When carring out the experiments under the same condition, total counts differential was from 3.5% to 5.7% (mean counts was from 3.4% to 6.8%) in phantom and patients data. In addition, we also run the experiments in the double activity condition. Total counts differential was from 2.6% to 4.9% (mean counts was from 4.1% to 4.9%) in phantom and patients data. Conclusion: We can know that original and registration data are little different in image analysis. If we use the image registration method, we can improve disadvantage of two days method in brain perfusion SPECT. But we must consider image registration about the distance differences in x, y, z axes.

  • GOES-9 has been operated with the status of the Image Motion Compensation(IMC) off since last October. As the IMC function turned off, the sub-satellite point(SSP) of GVAR data was changed with the effect of the satellite motions. This makes the image registration, to maintain pixels within an image and between successive images to their earth-referenced information, not to be possible any more. In the paper, we introduce the method to accomplish image registration and the result of the SSP observation with the status of IMC off.

  • Image co-registration is the process of overlaying two images of the same scene. One of which is a reference image, while the other (sensed image) is geometrically transformed to the one. Numerous methods were developed for the automated image co-registration and it is known as a time-consuming and/or computation-intensive procedure. In order to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the co-registration of satellite imagery, this paper proposes a pre-qualified area matching, which is composed of feature extraction with Laplacian filter and area matching algorithm using correlation coefficient. Moreover, to improve the accuracy of co-registration, the outliers in the initial matching point should be removed. For this, two outlier detection techniques of studentized residual and modified RANSAC algorithm are used in this study. Three pairs of Landsat images were used for performance test, and the results were compared and evaluated in terms of robustness and efficiency.
