Most previously reported registration techniques that align three-dimensional image volumes by matching geometrical features such as points or surfaces use a single type of feature. The authors recently reported a hybrid registration technique that uses a weighted combination of multiple geometrical feature shapes. In this study they use the weighted geometrical feature (WGF) algorithm to register computed tomography (CT) images of the head to physical space using the skin surface only, the… CONTINUE READING
