We consider elastic registration of medical image data based on thin plate splines using a set of corresponding anatomical point land marks Previous work on this topic has concentrated on using interpola tion schemes Such schemes force the corresponding landmarks to exactly match each other and assume that the landmark positions are known exactly However in real applications the localization of landmarks is always prone to some error Therefore to take into account these local ization errors we… CONTINUE READING
