A Communication Term for the Combined Registration and Segmentation

Konstantin Ens, Jens von Berg, Bernd Fischer

Abstract

Accurate image registration is a necessary prerequisite for many diagnostic and therapy planning procedures where complementary information from different images has to be combined. The design of robust and reliable non-parametric registration schemes is currently a very active research area. Modern approaches combine the pure registration scheme with other image processing routines such that both ingredients may benefit from each other. One of the new approaches is the combination of segmentation and registration (``segistration''). Here, the segmentation part guides the registration to its desired configuration, whereas on the other hand the registration leads to an automatic segmentation. By joining these image processing methods it is possible to overcome some of the pitfalls of the individual methods. Here, we focus on the benefits for the registration task.
