Image Registration by Hierarchical Matching of Local Spatial Intensity Histograms
We previously presented a HAMMER image registration algorithm that demonstrated high accuracy in superposition of images from different individual brains. However, the HAMMER registration algorithm requires pre-segmentation of brain tissues, since the attribute vectors used to hierarchically match the corresponding pairs of points are defined from the segmented images. In many applications, the segmentation of tissues might be difficult, unreliable or even impossible to complete, which potentially limits the use of the HAMMER algorithm in more generalized applications. To overcome this limitation, we use local spatial intensity histograms to design a new type of attribute vector for each point in an intensity image. The histogram-based attribute vector is rotationally invariant, and more importantly it captures spatial information by integrating a number of local histograms that are calculated from multi-resolution images. The new attribute vectors are able to determine corresponding p...
