Module Description

This is the module for warping image volumes with transforms. It allows you to select B-spline deformable registration transform (B-spline coefficients) or vector field directrly from MRML tree or from file and use it to warp images, structure sets and doses.

Usage

Tutorials

Quick Tour of Features and Use

  • Input/Output panel:
    • Input Volume: Here you choose the volume which will be warped.
    • Input transform (MRML): Here you choose the transform from MRML tree.
    • Input transform (file): Here you choose the transform from file (type the full path).
    • Output Volume: Here you choose where to put the output volume. Unless you want to replace an existing volume, you should choose "Create New Volume".

More Information

About plastimatch

Plastimatch is an open source software for deformable image registration. It is designed for high-performance volumetric registration of medical images, such as X-ray computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). Software features include:

  • B-spline method for deformable image registration (GPU and multicore accelerated)
  • Demons method for deformable image registration (GPU accelerated)
  • ITK-based algorithms for translation, rigid, affine, demons, and B-spline registration
  • Pipelined, multi-stage registration framework with seamless conversion between most algorithms and transform types
  • Landmark-based deformable registration using thin-plate splines for global registration
  • Landmark-based deformable registration using radial basis functions for local corrections
  • Broad support for 3D image file formats (using ITK), including Dicom, Nifti, NRRD, MetaImage, and Analyze
  • Dicom and DicomRT import and export
  • XiO import and export
  • Plugins for 3D Slicer

Plastimatch also features two handy utilities which are not directly related to image registration:

  • FDK cone-beam CT reconstruction (GPU and multicore accelerated)
  • Digitally reconstructed radiograph (DRR) generation (GPU and multicore accelerated)
