Liver Motion Estimation via Locally Adaptive Over-Segmentation Regularization

Despite significant advances in the development of deformable registration methods, motion correction of deformable organs such as the liver remain a challenging task. This is due to not only low contrast in liver imaging, but also due to the particularly complex motion between scans primarily owing to patient breathing. In this paper, we address abdominal motion estimation using a novel regularization model that is advancing the state-of-the-art in liver registration in terms of accuracy. We propose a novel regularization of the deformation field based on spatially adaptive over-segmentation, to better model the physiological motion of the abdomen. Our quantitative analysis of abdominal Computed Tomography and dynamic contrast-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging scans show a significant improvement over the state-of-the-art Demons approaches. This work also demonstrates the feasibility of segmentation-free registration between clinical scans that can inherently preserve sliding motion at the lung and liver boundary interfaces.
