The free-form deformation model can represent a wide range of non-rigid deformations by manipulating a control point lattice over the image. However, due to a large number of parameters, it is challenging to fit the free-form deformation model directly to the deformed image for deformation estimation because of the complexity of the fitness landscape. In this paper, we cast the registration task as a multi-objective optimization problem (MOP) according to the fact that regions affected by each… 



A Fast 2D Shape Recovery Approach by Fusing Features and Appearance

This paper proposes a novel progressive finite Newton optimization scheme for the feature-based nonrigid surface detection problem, which is reduced to only solving a set of linear equations.

A probabilistic bitwise genetic algorithm for B-spline based image deformation estimation

A genetic operation named probabilistic bitwise operation (PBO) is developed to replace the crossover and mutation operations, which can preserve the diversity during generation iteration and achieve better coverage ratio of the solution space.

The approach is to quantize the parameters of projective transformation with binary finite field and search for an appropriate solution as the final result over the discrete sampling set and develop a level-wise adaptive sampling (LAS) method under genetic algorithm framework.

Non-rigid registration using free-form deformations

This chapter shows how free-form deformations can be used in non-rigid registration to model complex local deformations of 3D organs and in combination with mutual information-based similarity metrics for the registration of mono- modal and multi-modal medical images.

Deformable Surface Tracking by Graph Matching

A graph-based approach that effectively explores the structure information of the surface to enhance tracking performance and achieves robust tracking results for surfaces with different types of texture, and outperforms other algorithms in both accuracy and efficiency.

Tracking Partially-Occluded Deformable Objects while Enforcing Geometric Constraints

A better way to handle severe occlusion by using a motion model to regularize the tracking estimate and the formulation of convex geometric constraints, which allow us to prevent self-intersection and penetration into known obstacles via a post-processing step.

Direct manipulation of free-form deformations

This work presents a method that allows a user to control a free-form deformation of an object by manipulating the object directly, leading to better control of the deformation and a more intuitive interface.

Evolutionary multi-objective meta-optimization of deformation and tissue removal parameters improves the performance of deformable image registration of pre- and post-surgery images

Results show that using meta-optimization with simulated tissue removal improves the performance of DIR, and sets of high-quality solutions could be obtained with a mean target registration error.
