On Elastic Image Registration with Varying Material Parameters

Sven Kabus, Astrid Franz, Bernd Fischer


In this paper we are concerned with elastic image registration. Usually elastic approaches assume constant material parameters and result in a smooth displacement field. This approach has its shortcomings for images with varying elastic properties, like bones and soft tissue. Here, we present a scheme which not only allows for spatially varying material properties but enables the introduction of discontinuities within the displacement field. First numerical test runs for phantom images as well as for MR images indicate the potential of the discussed scheme.
