Diffeomorphic Image Registration with An Optimal Control Relaxation and Its Implementation

  title={Diffeomorphic Image Registration with An Optimal Control Relaxation and Its Implementation},
  author={Jianping Zhang and Yanyan Li},
Image registration has played an important role in image processing problems, especially in medical imaging applications. It is well known that when the deformation is large, many variational models cannot ensure diffeomorphism. In this paper, we propose a new registration model based on an optimal control relaxation constraint for large deformation images, which can theoretically guarantee that the registration mapping is diffeomorphic. We present an analysis of optimal control relaxation for… 


A Novel Diffeomorphic Model for Image Registration and Its Algorithm
This work proposes a new variational model with a special regularizer, based on the quasi-conformal theory, which can guarantee that the registration map is diffeomorphic, and proposes an iterative method to solve the resulting nonlinear optimization problem and prove the convergence of the method.
Numerical methods for volume preserving image registration
Image registration is one of today's challenging image processing problems, particularly in medical imaging. Since the problem is ill posed, one may like to add additional information about
Curvature Based Image Registration
A fully automated, non-rigid image registration algorithm that not only produces accurate and smooth solutions but also allows for an automatic rigid alignment and an implementation based on the numerical solution of the underlying Euler-Lagrange equations.
Multigrid based total variation image registration
We consider the image registration problem to find a reasonable displacement field, such that a transformed template image becomes similar to a so-called reference image. The minimization of the

A novel algorithm is presented to obtain diffeomorphic image or surface registrations with large deformations via quasi-conformal maps to minimize an energy functional involving a Beltrami coefficient term, which measures the distortion of the quasi- Conformal map.
Image Registration with Guaranteed Displacement Regularity
This work presents a mathematically sound formulation that explicitly controls the deformation of a transformation in terms of the determinant of the Jacobian of the transformation, and presents some numerical examples that demonstrate the advantage of including inequality constraints explicitly.
A Lagrangian Gauss-Newton-Krylov Solver for Mass- and Intensity-Preserving Diffeomorphic Image Registration
An efficient solver for diffeomorphic image registration problems in the framework of Large Deformations Diffeomorphic Metric Mappings (LDDMM) and a key contribution is the elimination of the PDE constraint using a Lagrangian hyperbolic PDE solver.
An improved discontinuity-preserving image registration model and its fast algorithm
Abstract Recently, Chumchob–Chen(2010) proposed a discontinuity-preserving image registration model which was more flexible than those common techniques such as the diffusion and total variation
A Hyperelastic Regularization Energy for Image Registration
This paper presents hyperelasticity as a regularizer and introduces a new and stable numerical implementation and gives a short introduction to image registration and hypeRELasticity.
Indirect Image Registration with Large Diffeomorphic Deformations
The paper adapts the large deformation diffeomorphic metric mapping framework for image registration to the indirect setting where a template is registered against a target that is given through indirect noisy observations and proves that indirect image registration has solutions that are stable and converge as the data error tends so zero.
