Phase Based Volume Registration on the GPU with Application to Quantitative MRI
2010 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
We present a method for fast phase based registration of volume data for medical applications. As the number of different modalities within medical imaging increases, it becomes more and more important with registration that works for a mixture of modalities. For these applications the phase based registration approach has proven to be superior. Today there seem to be two kinds of groups that work with medical image registration, one that works with refining of the registration algorithms and one that works with implementation of more simple algorithms on graphic cards for speeding up the algorithms. We put the work from these groups together and get the best from both worlds. We achieve a speedup of 10-30 compared to our CPU implementation, which makes fast phase based registration possible for large medical volumes.
