Registration of MRI and iUS Data to Compensate Brain Shift Using a Symmetric Block-Matching Based Approach
This paper describes the application of an established block-matching based registration approach to the CuRIOUS 2018 MICCAI registration challenge. Different variations of this method are compared to demonstrate possible results of a fully automatic and general approach. The results can be used as a reference, for example when evaluating the performance of methods that are specifically developed for ultrasound to MRI registration.
