Mutual information (MI)-based image registration has been proved to be very effective in multimodal medical image applications. For computing the mutual information between two images, the joint histogram needs to be estimated. As we know, the joint histogram estimation through linear interpolation and partial volume (PV) interpolation methods may result in the emergency of the local extreme in mutual information registration function. The local extreme is likely to hamper the optimization… CONTINUE READING
