Research interests in single-modality nonlinear registration include four different kinds of subproblems. Deformable registration of two or more CT lung data sets at different states in the breathing cycle going from Functional Residual Capacity (FRC, expiration) to Total Lung Capacity (TLC, inspiration) for modelling breathing motion and deriving lung ventilation. Deformable registration of a contrast-enhanced and a native CT lung data set for deriving lung perfusion. Deformable registration of contrast-enhanced and native CT liver data sets at one or several phases in the contrast-uptake cycle for liver perfusion. And finally, highly accurate partially rigid bone registration for head and neck CT-Angiography applications to extract bone structures from CTA images.
