The segmented prostate shapes are represented by shape-contexts and the Bhattacharyya distance between the shape representations is used to find the point correspondences between the 2D fixed and moving images. The registration method involves parametric estimation of the non-linear diffeomorphism between the multimodal images and has its basis in solving a set of non-linear equations of thin-plate splines. The solution is obtained as the least-squares solution of an over-determined system of non-linear equations constructed by integrating a set of non-linear functions over the fixed and moving images. However, this may not result in clinically acceptable transformations of the anatomical targets. Therefore, the regularized bending energy of the thin-plate splines along with the localization error of established correspondences should be included in the system of equations. The registration accuracies of the proposed method are evaluated in 20 pairs of prostate mid-gland ultrasound and magnetic resonance images. The results obtained in terms of Dice similarity coefficient show an average of 0.980 ± 0.004, average 95% Hausdorff distance of 1.63 ± 0.48. mm and mean target registration and target localization errors of 1.60 ± 1.17. mm and 0.15 ± 0.12. mm respectively" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "This work is a part of the PROSCAN Project of the VICOROB laboratory of University of Girona, Catalunya, Spain.
