We are developing a method for full body (entire head and neck region), deformable, inter-patient registration for CT volumes. This problem is difficult because after rigid alignment is performed, large deformations are still present.
We will apply state-of-the art deformable registration methods (elastix toolbox, SyN, ART, FNIRT) to this problem. The results will be used to understand if this problem can be solved with existing methods/what unsolved questions exist and which scenarios should be used in a test suite for comparing the above mentioned approaches.
We have prepared typical registration scenarios of interest.
