Insight/Examples/Registration/ImageRegistration8.cxx This program is the most functional example of multi-modal 3D rigid image registration provided with ITK. ImageRegistration8 is in the Examples directory, and also sec. 8.5.3 in the ITK manual. We have modified and extended this example in several ways:

  • defined a new ITK Transform class, based on itkScaleSkewVersor3DTransform which has 3 dimensions of scale but no skew aspect.
  • implemented a set of functions to convert between Versor Transforms and the general itk::AffineTransform and deferred converting from specific to more general representations to preserve transform information specificity as long as possible. Our Rigid transform is the narrowest, a Versor rotation plus separate translation.
  • Added a template class itkMultiModal3DMutualRegistrationHelper which is templated over the type of ITK transform generated, and the optimizer used.
  • Added image masks as an optional input to the Registration algorithm, limiting the volume considered during registration to voxels within the brain.
  • Added image mask generation as an optional input to the Registration algorithm when meaningful masks such as for whole brain are not available, allowing the fit to at least be focused on whole head tissue.
  • Added the ability to use one transform result, such as the Rigid transform, to initialize a more adaptive transform
  • Defined the command line parameters using tools from the Slicer [ 3] program, in order to conform to the Slicer3 Execution model.

Added the ability to write output images in any ITK-supported scalar image format.

Usage

The BRAINSFit distribution contains a directory named TestData, which contains two example images. The first, test.nii.gz is a NIfTI format image volume, which is used the input for the CTest-managed regression test program. The program makexfrmedImage.cxx, included in the BRAINSFit distribution was used to generate test2.nii.gz, by scaling, rotating and translating test.nii.gz. You can see representative Sagittal slices of test.nii.gz (in this case, the fixed image, test2.nii.gz (the moving image), and the two images ’checkerboarded’ together to the right. To register test2.nii.gz to test.nii.gz, you can use the following command:

BRAINSFit --fixedVolume test.nii.gz \
--movingVolume test2.nii.gz \
--outputVolume registered.nii.gz \
--transformType Affine

A representative slice of the registered results image registered.nii.gz is to the right. You can see from the Checkerboard of the Fixed and Registered images that the fit is quite good with Affine transform-based registration. The blurring of the registered images is a consequence of the initial scaling used in generating the moving image from the fixed image, compounded by the interpolation necessitated by the transform operation.

You can see the differences in results if you re-run BRAINSFit using Rigid, ScaleVersor3D, or ScaleSkewVersor3D as the ----transformType parameter. In this case, the authors judged Affine the best method for registering these particular two images; in the BRAINS2 automated processing pipeline, Rigid usually works well for registering research scans.

Use Cases, Examples

This module is especially appropriate for these use cases:

  • Use Case 1: Same Subject: Longitudinal

For this use case we're registering a baseline T1 scan with a follow-up T1 scan on the same subject a year later. The two images are again available in the Slicer3/Applications/CLI/BRAINSTools/BRAINSCommonLib/TestData directory as testT1.nii.gz and testT1Longitudinal.nii.gz

First we set the fixed and moving volumes as well as the output transform and output volume names.

--fixedVolume testT1.nii.gz \
--movingVolume testT1Longitudinal.nii.gz \
--outputVolume testT1LongRegFixed.nii.gz \
--outputTransform longToBase.xform \

Since these are the same subject and very little has likely changed in the last year we'll use a Rigid registration. If the registration is poor or there are reasons to expect anatomical changes then additional transforms may be needed, in which case they can be added in a comma separated list, such as "Rigid,ScaleVersor3D,ScaleSkewVersor3D,Affine,BSpline".

--transformType Rigid \

The scans are the same modality so we'll use --histogramMatch to match the intensity profiles as this tends to help registration. If there are lesions or tumors that vary between images this may not be a good idea, as it will make it harder to detect differences between the images.

--histogramMatch \

To start with the best possible initial alignment we use --initializeTransformMode. We're working with human heads so we pick useCenterOfHeadAlign, which detects the center of head even with varying amounts of neck or shoulders present.

--initializeTransformMode useCenterOfHeadAlign \

ROI masks normally improve registration but we haven't generated any so we turn on --maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO.

--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \

The registration generally performs better if we include some background in the mask that way the tissue boundary is very clear. The parameter that expands the mask outside the brain is ROIAutoDilateSize (under Registration Debugging Parameters if using the GUI). These values are in millimeters so a good starting value is 3.

--ROIAutoDilateSize 3 \

Last we set the interpolation mode to be Linear, which is a decent tradeoff between quality and speed. If the best possible interpolation is needed regardless of processing time, select WindowedSync instead of linear.

--interpolationMode Linear

The full command is:

BRAINSFit --fixedVolume testT1.nii.gz \
--movingVolume testT1Longitudinal.nii.gz \
--outputVolume testT1LongRegFixed.nii.gz \
--outputTransform longToBase.xform \
--transformType Rigid \
--histogramMatch \
--initializeTransformMode useCenterOfHeadAlign \
--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \
--ROIAutoDilateSize 3 \
--interpolationMode Linear

  • Use Case 2: Same Subject: MultiModal

For this use case we're registering a T1 scan with a T2 scan collected in the same sesson. The two images are again available in the Slicer3/Applications/CLI/BRAINSTools/BRAINSCommonLib/TestData directory as testT1.nii.gz and testT2.nii.gz

First we set the fixed and moving volumes as well as the output transform and output volume names.

--fixedVolume testT1.nii.gz \
--movingVolume testT2.nii.gz \
--outputVolume testT2RegT1.nii.gz \
--outputTransform T2ToT1.xform \

Since these are the same subject, same session we'll use a Rigid registration.

--transformType Rigid \

The scans are different modalities so we absolutely DO NOT want to use --histogramMatch to match the intensity profiles as this would try to map the T2 intensities into T1 intensities, resulting in an image that was neither, and hence useless.

To start with the best possible initial alignment we use --initializeTransformMode. We're working with human heads so we pick useCenterOfHeadAlign, which detects the center of head even with varying amounts of neck or shoulders present.

--initializeTransformMode useCenterOfHeadAlign \

ROI masks normally improve registration but we haven't generated any so we turn on --maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO.

--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \

The registration generally performs better if we include some background in the mask that way the tissue boundary is very clear. The parameter that expands the mask outside the brain is ROIAutoDilateSize (under Registration Debugging Parameters if using the GUI). These values are in millimeters so a good starting value is 3.

--ROIAutoDilateSize 3 \

Last we set the interpolation mode to be Linear, which is a decent tradeoff between quality and speed. If the best possible interpolation is needed regardless of processing time, select WindowedSync instead of linear.

--interpolationMode Linear

The full command is:

BRAINSFit --fixedVolume testT1.nii.gz \
--movingVolume testT2.nii.gz \
--outputVolume testT2RegT1.nii.gz \
--outputTransform T2ToT1.xform \
--transformType Rigid \
--initializeTransformMode useCenterOfHeadAlign \
--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \
--ROIAutoDilateSize 3 \
--interpolationMode Linear

  • Use Case 3: Mouse Registration

Here we'll register brains from two different mice together. The fixed and moving mouse brains used in this example are available in the Slicer3/Applications/CLI/BRAINSTools/BRAINSCommonLib/TestData directory.

First we set the fixed and moving volumes as well as the output transform and output volume names.

--fixedVolume mouseFixed.nii.gz \
--movingVolume mouseMoving.nii.gz \
--outputVolume movingRegFixed.nii.gz \
--outputTransform movingToFixed.xform \

Since the subjects are different we are going to use transforms all the way through BSpline. Again, building up transforms one type at a time can't hurt and might help, so we're including all transforms from Rigid through BSpline in the transformType parameter.

--transformType Rigid,ScaleVersor3D,ScaleSkewVersor3D,Affine,BSpline \

The scans are the same modality so we'll use --histogramMatch.

--histogramMatch \

To start with the best possible initial alignment we use --initializeTransformMode but we are't working with human heads so we can't pick useCenterOfHeadAlign. Instead we pick useMomentsAlign which does a reasonable job of selecting the centers of mass.

--initializeTransformMode useMomentsAlign \

ROI masks normally improve registration but we haven't generated any so we turn on --maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO.

--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \

Since the mouse brains are much smaller than human brains there are a few advanced parameters we'll need to tweak, ROIAutoClosingSize and ROIAutoDilateSize (both under Registration Debugging Parameters if using the GUI). These values are in millimeters so a good starting value for mice is 0.9.

--ROIAutoClosingSize 0.9 \
--ROIAutoDilateSize 0.9 \

Last we set the interpolation mode to be Linear, which is a decent tradeoff between quality and speed. If the best possible interpolation is needed regardless of processing time, select WindowedSync instead of linear.

--interpolationMode Linear

The full command is:

BRAINSFit --fixedVolume mouseFixed.nii.gz \
--movingVolume mouseMoving.nii.gz \
--outputVolume movingRegFixed.nii.gz \
--outputTransform movingToFixed.xform \
--transformType Rigid,ScaleVersor3D,ScaleSkewVersor3D,Affine,BSpline \
--histogramMatch \
--initializeTransformMode useMomentsAlign \
--maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO \
--ROIAutoClosingSize 0.9 \
--ROIAutoDilateSize 0.9 \
--interpolationMode Linear

    • Transform Type [--transformType] : Specifies a list of registration types to be used. The valid types are, Rigid, ScaleVersor3D, ScaleSkewVersor3D, Affine, and BSpline. Specifiying more than one in a comma separated list will initialize the next stage with the previous results. If registrationClass flag is used, it overrides this parameter setting.
    • Number Of Iterations [--numberOfIterations] : The maximum number of iterations to try before failing to converge. Use an explicit limit like 500 or 1000 to manage risk of divergence Default value: 1500
    • Number Of Samples [--numberOfSamples] : The number of voxels sampled for mutual information computation. Increase this for a slower, more careful fit. You can also limit the sampling focus with ROI masks and ROIAUTO mask generation. Default value: 100000
    • Minimum Step Length [--minimumStepLength] : Each step in the optimization takes steps at least this big. When none are possible, registration is complete. Default value: 0.005
    • Transform Scale [--translationScale] : How much to scale up changes in position compared to unit rotational changes in radians -- decrease this to put more rotation in the search pattern. Default value: 1000.0
    • Reproportion Scale [--reproportionScale] : ScaleVersor3D 'Scale' compensation factor. Increase this to put more rescaling in a ScaleVersor3D or ScaleSkewVersor3D search pattern. 1.0 works well with a translationScale of 1000.0 Default value: 1.0
    • Skew Scale [--skewScale] : ScaleSkewVersor3D Skew compensation factor. Increase this to put more skew in a ScaleSkewVersor3D search pattern. 1.0 works well with a translationScale of 1000.0 Default value: 1.0

    • Maximum B-Spline Displacement [--maxBSplineDisplacement] : Sets the maximum allowed displacements in image physical coordinates for BSpline control grid along each axis. A value of 0.0 indicates that the problem should be unbounded. NOTE: This only constrains the BSpline portion, and does not limit the displacement from the associated bulk transform. This can lead to a substantial reduction in computation time in the BSpline optimizer. Default value: 0.0
  • Advanced Output Settings:
    • Stripped Output Transform [--strippedOutputTransform] : File name for the rigid component of the estimated affine transform. Can be used to rigidly register the moving image to the fixed image. NOTE: This value is overwritten if either bsplineTransform or linearTransform is set.

    • Inferior Cut Off From Center [--maskInferiorCutOffFromCenter] : For use with --useCenterOfHeadAlign (and --maskProcessingMode ROIAUTO): the cut-off below the image centers, in millimeters, Default value: 1000.0
    • Scale Output Values [--scaleOutputValues] : If true, and the voxel values do not fit within the minimum and maximum values of the desired outputVolumePixelType, then linearly scale the min/max output image voxel values to fit within the min/max range of the outputVolumePixelType. Default value: false
    • Interpolation Mode [--interpolationMode] : Type of interpolation to be used when applying transform to moving volume. Options are Linear, NearestNeighbor, BSpline, WindowedSinc, or RigidInPlace. The RigidInPlace option will create an image with the same discrete voxel values and will adjust the origin and direction of the physical space interpretation. Default value: Linear
  • Control of Mask Processing:
    • Mask Processing Mode [--maskProcessingMode] : What mode to use for using the masks. If ROIAUTO is choosen, then the mask is implicitly defined using a otsu forground and hole filling algorithm. The Region Of Interest mode (choose ROI) uses the masks to define what parts of the image should be used for computing the transform. Default value: NOMASK
    • Output Fixed Mask (ROIAUTO only) [--outputFixedVolumeROI] : The ROI automatically found in fixed image.
    • Output Moving Mask (ROIAUTO only) [--outputMovingVolumeROI] : The ROI automatically found in moving image.
    • Input Fixed Mask (ROI only) [--fixedBinaryVolume] : Fixed Image binary mask volume.
    • Input Moving Mask (ROI only) [--movingBinaryVolume] : Moving Image binary mask volume.
  • Special Input Image Parameters:
    • Fixed Image Time Index [--fixedVolumeTimeIndex] : The index in the time series for the 3D fixed image to fit, if 4-dimensional. Default value: 0
    • Moving Image Time Index [--movingVolumeTimeIndex] : The index in the time series for the 3D moving image to fit, if 4-dimensional. Default value: 0
    • Median Filter Size [--medianFilterSize] : The radius for the optional MedianImageFilter preprocessing in all 3 directions. Default value: 0,0,0
    • Histogram Match [--histogramMatch] [-e]: Histogram Match the input images. This is suitable for images of the same modality that may have different absolute scales, but the same overall intensity profile. Do NOT use if registering images from different modailties. Default value: false
    • Number of Histogram Bins [--numberOfHistogramBins] : The number of histogram levels Default value: 50
    • Number of Match Points [--numberOfMatchPoints] : the number of match points Default value: 10
  • Registration Debugging Parameters:
    • Caching BSpline Weights Mode [--useCachingOfBSplineWeightsMode] : This is a 5x speed advantage at the expense of requiring much more memory. Only relevant when transformType is BSpline. Default value: ON
    • Explicit PDF Derivatives Mode [--useExplicitPDFDerivativesMode] : Using mode AUTO means OFF for BSplineDeformableTransforms and ON for the linear transforms. The ON alternative uses more memory to sometimes do a better job. Default value: AUTO
    • ROIAuto Dilate Size [--ROIAutoDilateSize] : This flag is only relavent when using ROIAUTO mode for initializing masks. It defines the final dilation size to capture a bit of background outside the tissue region. At setting of 10mm has been shown to help regularize a BSpline registration type so that there is some background constraints to match the edges of the head better. Default value: 0.0
    • ROIAuto Closing Size [--ROIAutoClosingSize] : This flag is only relavent when using ROIAUTO mode for initializing masks. It defines the hole closing size in mm. It is rounded up to the nearest whole pixel size in each direction. The default is to use a closing size of 9mm. For mouse data this value may need to be reset to 0.9 or smaller. Default value: 9.0
    • Relaxation Factor [--relaxationFactor] : Internal debugging parameter, and should probably never be used from the command line. This will be removed in the future. Default value: 0.5
    • Maximum Step Length [--maximumStepLength] : Internal debugging parameter, and should probably never be used from the command line. This will be removed in the future. Default value: 0.2
    • Failure Exit Code [--failureExitCode] : If the fit fails, exit with this status code. (It can be used to force a successfult exit status of (0) if the registration fails due to reaching the maximum number of iterations. Default value: -1
    • Write Transform On Failure [--writeTransformOnFailure] : Flag to save the final transform even if the numberOfIterations are reached without convergence. (Intended for use when --failureExitCode 0 ) Default value: 0
    • debugNumberOfThreads [--debugNumberOfThreads] : Explicitly specify the maximum number of threads to use. Default value: -1
    • Debug option [--debugLevel] : Display debug messages, and produce debug intermediate results. 0=OFF, 1=Minimal, 10=Maximum debugging. Default value: 0
  • Risky Expert-only Parameters:
    • DO NOT USE [--NEVER_USE_THIS_FLAG_IT_IS_OUTDATED_00] : DO NOT USE THIS FLAG Default value: false
    • DO NOT USE [--NEVER_USE_THIS_FLAG_IT_IS_OUTDATED_01] : DO NOT USE THIS FLAG Default value: false
    • DO NOT USE [--NEVER_USE_THIS_FLAG_IT_IS_OUTDATED_02] : DO NOT USE THIS FLAG Default value: false
    • Selective Permission for Transform Parameters to Vary [--permitParameterVariation] : A bit vector to permit linear transform parameters to vary under optimization. The vector order corresponds with transform parameters, and beyond the end ones fill in as a default. For instance, you can choose to rotate only in x (pitch) with 1,0,0; this is mostly for expert use in turning on and off individual degrees of freedom in rotation, translation or scaling without multiplying the number of transform representations; this trick is probably meaningless when tried with the general affine transform.=
    • Cost Metric [--costMetric] : The cost metric to be used during fitting. Defaults to MMI. Options are MMI (Mattes Mutual Information), MSE (Mean Square Error), NC (Normalized Correlation), MC (Match Cardinality for binary images) Default value: MMI

Notes from the Developer(s)

This is a thin wrapper program around the BRAINSFitHelper class in BRAINSCommonLib. The BRAINSFitHelper class is intended to allow all the functionality of BRAINSFit to be easily incorporated into another program by including a single header file, linking against the BRAINSCommonLib library, and adding code similar to the following to your application:

    myHelper->SetTransformType(localTransformType);
    myHelper->SetFixedVolume(extractFixedVolume);
    myHelper->SetMovingVolume(extractMovingVolume);
    myHelper->StartRegistration();
    currentGenericTransform=myHelper->GetCurrentGenericTransform();
    MovingVolumeType::ConstPointer preprocessedMovingVolume = myHelper->GetPreprocessedMovingVolume();

/*  Optional member functions that can also be set */
