Image fusion and registration -- a variational approach

B. Fischer, J. Modersitzki


Image fusion or registration is central to many challenges in medical imaging today and has a vast range of applications. The purpose of this paper is to give an introduction to intensity based non-linear registration and fusion problems from a variational point of view. To do so, we review some of the most promising non-linear registration strategies currently used in medical imaging and show that all these techniques may be phrased in terms of a variational problem and allow for a unified treatment.
