This paper proposes a method for the registration of white matter tract bundles traced from diffusion images and its extension to atlas generation, Our framework is based on a Gaussian process representation of tract density maps. Such a representation avoids the need for point-to-point correspondences, is robust to tract interruptions and reconnections and seamlessly handles the comparison and combination of white matter tract bundles. Moreover, being a parametric model, this approach has the… CONTINUE READING
