A Unified Information-Theoretic Approach to Groupwise Non-rigid Registration and Model Building
The non-rigid registration of a group of images shares a common feature with building a model of a group of images: a dense, consistent correspondence across the group. Image registration aims to find the correspondence, while modelling requires it. This paper presents the theoretical framework required to unify these two areas, providing a groupwise registration algorithm, where the inherently groupwise model of the image data becomes an integral part of the registration process. The performance of this algorithm is evaluated by extending the concepts of generalisability and specificity from shape models to image models. This provides an independent metric for comparing registration algorithms of groups of images. Experimental results on MR data of brains for various pairwise and groupwise registration algorithms is presented, and demonstrates the feasibility of the combined registration/modelling framework, as well as providing quantitative evidence for the superiority of groupwise a...
