Automatic segmentation of CT and MR volume data using non-rigid morphon registration
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Automatic segmentation of anatomical structures is often performed using model based non-rigid registration methods. The morphon algorithm is one such method. In this algorithm, two or three dimensional images are registered using a multi-resolution deformation scheme. A prototype image is iteratively registered to a target image, using local phase difference to estimate the displacement between the images. This method has been extended with normalised convolution, to guide the registration process using prior knowledge about the target image. By defining a certainty mask used in the normalised convolution one can either specify a region of interest in the target image, or, on the other hand, occlude regions in the image that should not affect the matching. Two different applications are presented, which each demonstrates the use of this method for automatic segmentation.
