"Whole Brain Registration"

Whole Brain Registration


Inter-subject registration of whole brain magnetic resonance images is a challenging problem because of the high anatomical variability and the convoluted folding of the cortex. Applications of non-rigid registration are vast and include morphometry, functional localization, and atlas creation.

Our approach is to use automated Freesurfer segmentations of multiple brain structures as simultaneous anatomic constraints (multi-structure registration).
