We present the Active Registration Model (ARM) that couples medical image registration with regularization using a statistical model of intensity. Inspired by Active Appearance Models (AAMs), the statistical model is embedded in the registration procedure as a regularization term that penalize differences between a target image and a synthesized model reconstruction of that image. We demonstrate that the method generalizes AAMs to 3D images, many different transformation models, and many different gradient descent optimization methods. The method is validated on magnetic resonance images of human brains.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
