Registration Methods for Quantitative Imaging

At the core of most image registration problems is determining a spatial transformation that relates the physical coordinates of two or more images. Registration methods have become ubiquitous in many quantitative imaging applications. They represent an essential step for many biomedical and bioengineering applications
