We want to implement the Mutual Information metric using partial voluming for the registration of multi-modal images. The aim is to correct EPI distortions in diffusion-weighted images (DWIs).
Our approach is to register the DWIs to the baseline (B0) image using affine transformations and mutual information. We are implementing a version of MI that interpolates both joint histogram and partial voluming. This is smoother than the Mattes MI currently in ITK.
- finished 3D mutual information metric coding
- tested to register T2 diffusion weighted image to its own baseline T2 image
- with the help of Luis, rewrote the code into ITK filter
- test the algorithm using Autism data and data from MIND
- compare the acuracy between this MI metric and Matte Metric
