Abstract
In this paper, we present an automated multi-modality registration algorithm based on hierarchical feature extraction. The approach, which has not ben used previously, can be divided into two distinct stages: feature extraction and geometric matching. Two kinds of corresponding features - edge and surface - are extracted hierarchically from various image modalities. The registration then is performed using least-squares matching of the automatically extracted features. Both the robustness and accuracy of feature extraction and geometric marching steps are evaluated using simulated and patient images. The preliminary results show the error is on the average of one voxel. We have shown the proposed 3D registration algorithm provides a simple and fast method for automatic registering of MR-to-CT and MR-to- PET image modalities. Our results are comparable to other techniques and require no user interaction.
