We are developing a case-specific registration module capable of handling the different image types used at the CARMA Center (e.g., LGE-MRI, MRA, CT) [1] [2]. The goal is to improve the accuracy of the current registration methods by defining case-specific parameters.

Approach, Plan

Our approach for registration is parameter optimization for the current ITK registration approaches.

Our plan for the project week is to further define the registration cases and begin implementation in Slicer 4.


We have defined some preliminary registration cases [3]. We have designed an initial layout for the module, but will have to refine the design as we have realized that the registration algorithm will require both images and segmentations to drive the registration.

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a

  1. ITK Module - NO
  2. Slicer Module
    1. Built-in - NO
    2. Extension -- commandline - YES
    3. Extension -- loadable - NO
  3. Other (Please specify)
