To enable image guided neurosurgery, the alignment of pre-interventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and intra-operative ultrasound (US) is commonly required. We present two automatic image registration algorithms using the similarity measure Linear Correlation of Linear Combination (LC(2)) to align either freehand US slices or US volumes with MRI images. Both approaches allow an automatic and robust registration, while the three dimensional method yields a significantly improved… CONTINUE READING
