A SIFT-Based Approach for Image Registration
Over the past several decades, image registration has emerged as one of the key technologies in medical image computing with applications ranging from computer assisted diagnosis to computer aided therapy and surgery. In this paper, we present a new method for medical image registration, which is based on the Scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT) and TPS. Our experimental results show that the proposed method could achieve greater competitive performance than TPS-based image registration technique.
