This manuscript tackles the reconstruction of 3-D volumes via mono-modal registration of series of 2-D biological images (histological sections, autoradiographs, cryosections, etc.). The process of acquiring these images typically induces composite transformations that we model as a number of rigid or affine local transformations embedded in an elastic one. We propose a registration approach closely derived from this model. Given a pair of input images, we first compute a dense similarity field… CONTINUE READING
