  • Provides a balance of lay and expert treatment of fundamental concepts
  • Addresses the theoretical background and concepts behind image registration
  • Surveys the strengths and weaknesses of current image registration techniques, and considers future applications
  • Includes current clinical applications like MRI, MRI-PET, and MRI-CT
  • Presents practical information with many real world examples
  • Summary

    Image registration is the process of systematically placing separate images in a common frame of reference so that the information they contain can be optimally integrated or compared. This is becoming the central tool for image analysis, understanding, and visualization in both medical and scientific applications. Medical Image Registration provides the first comprehensive coverage of this emerging field.

    This monograph details the theory, technology, and practical implementations in a variety of medical settings. International experts thoroughly explain why image registration is important, describe its applications in a nonmathematical way, and include rigorous analysis for those who plan to implement algorithms themselves. It is accessible and informative to those new to the field, yet it provides in-depth treatment for the expert. With its practical examples, extensive illustrations, and comprehensible approach, Medical Image Registration is a must have guide for medical physicists, clinicians, and researchers.
