ITMAN PhD course
Numerical Methods for Medical Image Registration
A generic task in modern image processing is image registration, needed for integration and/or comparison of data obtained from different images. Particularly in a medical environment, there is a huge demand for comparing pre- and post-intervention images, integrating modalities like anatomy (obtained, e.g., from computer tomography) and functionality (obtained, e.g., from positron emission tomography), motion correction and/or reconstruction of two-dimensional projections from a three-dimensional volume (applies to all tomography techniques and histology). The problem is easily stated: given two images (a reference and a template image), find a transformation, such that the transformed image is similar to the reference image.
