【摘要】：In this paper, we present a non-linear (multi-affine) registration algorithm based on a local polynomial expansion model. We generalize previous work using a quadratic polynomial expansion model. Local affine models are estimated using this generalized model analytically and iteratively, and combined to a deformable registration algorithm. Experiments show that the affine parameter calculations derived from this quadratic model are more accurate than using a linear model. Experiments further indicate that the multi-affine deformable registration method can handle complex non-linear deformation fields necessary for deformable registration, and a faster convergent rate is verified from our comparison experiment.
