Fetal magnetic resonance imaging has been widely used for brain malformation assessment, brain growth estimation and related disease diagnosis. However, how to estimate fetal brain motion is pending which hampers image interpretation. This paper presents an image registration method to address this problem. It takes total-variation regularization (TV) to model fetal brain motions and adopts a penalty toward piece-wise convergence. Based on four clinical cases, the proposed method was verified… CONTINUE READING
