The surface-fitting method is one of the most promising techniques for 3-D image registration. It accurately registers two tomographic scans by matching the surface of a common object appearing on both scans. However, the goodness-of-fit measure used in the original algorithm is difficult to compute. We have developed a more efficient method that measures distance between surfaces in 2-D along the tomographic planes. Through a series of simulation studies, we demonstrate that the new method does not compromise the accuracy of the original algorithm.
