Deformable Registration with Discontinuity Preservation using Multi-Scale MRF
No opinion
Deformable (2D or 3D) medical image registration is a challenging problem. Existing approaches assume that the underlying deformation is smooth. This smoothness assumption allows for solving the deformable registration at a coarse resolution and interpolate [...]

Gauss-Newton Method for Segmentation assisted Deformable Registration
No opinion
In this work, we try to develop a fast converging method for segmentation assisted deformable registration. The segmentation step consists of a piece-wise constant Mumford-Shah energy model while reg- istration is driven by the sum of squared distances of [...]

Improvements to the itk::KernelTransform and Subclasses
No opinion
Kernel-based transforms such as the thin plate spline are frequently used to model deformations in medical imaging. The existing implementation in ITK is capable of being used to warp images, but does not work in the registration framework. The existing [...]

No opinion
We present preliminary results of our work to develop an augmented display for improved visualization of the prostate and surrounding critical anatomy for robot-assisted prostate surgery. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in [...]

Tensor Spectral Matching of Diffusion Weighted Images
No opinion
Very preterm birth coincides with a period of major development in the brain, with striking changes in volume, cortex folding and significant change at the microstructural level. Diffusion MRI is sensitive to motion of water on the scale of microns, allowing [...]

A novel atlas-selection approach for multi-atlas based segmentation using the correlation of inter-atlas similarities
No opinion
Automated segmentation is a frequently applied task in the course of medical imaging. Furthermore, it is a substantial component of image-guided radiotherapy. Atlas based segmentation is one of the most frequently used approach for automated segmentation. [...]

An ITK Implementation of the Symmetric Log-Domain Diffeomorphic Demons Algorithm
This article provides an implementation of the symmetric log-domain diffeomorphic image registration algorithm, or symmetric demons algorithm for short. It generalizes Thirion's demons and the diffeomorphic demons algorithm. The main practical advantages of [...]

Leveraging Open Source for Geographically Dispersed Workflows
No opinion
Personalized simulations can help assess and predict the clinical status of patients and are a key tenet of the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) framework. This paper shows how the turnkey access of GIMIAS, an open source software platform built on open [...]

Inverting deformation fields using a fixed point iteration scheme
Being able to quickly compute the inverse of a deformation field is often useful in the context of medical image analysis. While ITK supports this functionality, the current algorithms are slow and do not always yield accurate results. In this paper we [...]

A Multi-atlas Approach for the Automatic Segmentation of Multiple Structures in Head and Neck CT Images
No opinion
A multi-atlas approach is proposed for the automatic segmentation of nine different structures in a set of head and neck CT images for radiotherapy. The approach takes advantage of a training dataset of 25 images to build average head and neck atlases of [...]

Auto-kNN: Brain Tissue Segmentation using Automatically Trained k-Nearest-Neighbor Classification
No opinion
In this paper we applied one of our regularly used processing pipelines for fully automated brain tissue segmentation. Brain tissue was segmented in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM). Our algorithms for skull stripping, tissue [...]

Unwarping Echo Planar Images Using CMTK
