Abstract

One important application of image processing in medicine is to register tissue samples onto another. Registering these highly textured images with non-parametric methods sometimes leads to solutions which are known to be suboptimal. We show a projection technique for unwanted vortices in the displacement field. A new strategy is presented which does not change the registration method itself but continuously correct the solution during the registration process.
