Cylindrical Affine Transformation Model for Image Registration

C. Tanner and T. Carter and D.J. Hawkes and G. Székely
Proc. SPIE Medical Imaging: Image Processing


This paper describes the development of a cylindrical affine transformation model for image registration. The usefulness of the model for initial alignment was demonstrated for the application of registering prone and supine 3D MR images of the breast. Final registration results visually improved when using the cylindrical affine transformation model instead of none or a Cartesian affine transformation model before non-rigid registration.
