Overview

Image registration is the process of systematically placing separate images in a common frame of reference so that the information they contain can be optimally integrated or compared. This is becoming the central tool for image analysis, understanding, and visualization in both medical and scientific applications. Medical Image Registration provides the first comprehensive coverage of this emerging field.

This monograph details the theory, technology, and practical implementations in a variety of medical settings. International experts thoroughly explain why image registration is important, describe its applications in a nonmathematical way, and include rigorous analysis for those who plan to implement algorithms themselves. It is accessible and informative to those new to the field, yet it provides in-depth treatment for the expert. With its practical examples, extensive illustrations, and comprehensible approach, Medical Image Registration is a must have guide for medical physicists, clinicians, and researchers.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Radiologists explain how images from various sources can be aligned with each other, with computer models, or with physical space, so that corresponding features can easily be related. They cover the wide variety of techniques used for medical image registration, the relatively mature applications in which images can be aligned by global translation and rotation alone, and the nascent field of nonrigid image registration. So far the technique is little used except in image-guided surgery, and they encourage its use more widely in clinical practice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
