# multimodality non-rigid demon algorithm image registration

### Dirk-Jan Kroon (view profile)

16 Sep 2008 (Updated )

non-rigid 2D and 3D image registration with demon (fluid) algorithm, extended with modality transf.

File Information
Description

This function will perform demon registration which is an type of fast non-rigid fluid like registration between two 2D or 3D images. Registration between different (MRI) modalities is also supported, through a function which transform one image modality so it looks likes the modality of the second image.

The demon registration is described by the paper of Thirion 1998 and extended by Cachier 1999 and He Wang 2005.

Basic algorithm: On each pixel a velocity (movement) is defined with use of the intensity differences and gradient information. This velocity field is smoothed by an Gaussian, and iteratively used to transform the moving image, and register on to the static image. (Easy to understand code example in file basic_demon_example.m)

Instead of using the basic equations for the "demonregistration" function, we have rewritten it to be used by an limit memory BFGS optimizer in an iterative and multi-resolution way, with also support of diffusion regularization. (see also Tom Vercauteren et al. "Non-parametric Diffeomorphic Image..." )

Transforming one modality into the fake modality of the other image is done with use of 2D mutual histograms between regions of both images, and choosing the grey values which have the highest correlation. D. Kroon et al. "MRI Modality Transformation in Demon Registration" (MutualTransform.m)

See the screenshot for an example result.

Usage:
The functions register_images.m and register_volumes.m are easy to use, and will fit most applications.
First compile the c-code : compile_c_files.m.

Notes:
- All the mex-code is multi-threaded and is tested on both Windows and Linux.
- Please leave comments and report bugs

it is so slow. I waited for the result for 2 hours and gave up. I successfully run mex files and read in the two images. Iam using hdr images of different sizes. does the number of iterations have an effect on the result?.

Hi Dirk,

After the registration, I got the registered data in N by 3 size. Actually, I want to save this N by 3 size data as a point cloud for further processing. Please let me know, how it can be possible?

Thanking You

what is the difference between the output of "basic_demon_example.m" and the output of "register_images.m". I get two different registered images for the same pair of input. The registered image (Ireg) which is the output of "register_images.m" makes more sense to me. Can you please explain about the output of the "basic_demon_examples.m". Thanks

Very nice functions, thanks. I was wondering how I could best register (multimodal) a single slice to a 3D volume. I have a good estimate of the affine transformation because of how the images were acquired, but the subject moved between the two acquisitions.

Problem below solved:
It turns out the problem was that I had first downloaded the packages on a Mac and then copied them onto the Windows machine. Somewhere along the line, hidden files (with the prefix ._) with the .c extension were added to the folders by the Mac, and the windows compiler was trying unsuccessfully to read them. When I redownloaded the packages on the windows machine, everything was good.

To clarify, got this working for 2D, but for 3D modifying affine_error_3d_double.c but it doesn't work for 3D case.

I have 2 images, IM1, IM2. IM2 is a filled with value of 70s over a ROI and 0s elsewhere. I want to register IM1 with IM2 such that the MSE is minimized over the region where IM2 has value of 70s. Using rigid transformation.
Is this possible to do? This is not a direct image registration problem because IM1 and IM2 are not really same image. I want to find transformation such that sum(IM2(T*x)-IM1(x))^2 is minimized where IM2(T*x)=70. I tried to modify squared_difference_double.c:
if (I2[i]!=0) { // added if statement
ierror+=(I1[i]-I2[i])*(I1[i]-I2[i]);
}
this doesn't seem to work. Please advise.

Great work!

Question: is there any way to display how much an image was say rotated or shifted for a rigid transformation? Say I rotate an image by 15 degrees, imregister will output Ireg but how do I output this 15 degrees? Bx,By,Fx,Fy seems not to give this information. Thanks so much.

### Ryan Wu (view profile)

I found a possible bug in register_images.m
In following line which makes the transformation matrix of Affine:
M=make_transformation_matrix(x(1:2),x(3),x(4:5));
The shearing operation was not passed to the function. The correct one should be:
M=make_transformation_matrix(x(1:2),x(3),x(4:5),x(6:7));

The error "Undefined function or method 'movepixels' for input arguments of type 'double'." was originated from the path settings.
I added the following three lines to after 'compile_c_files' in basic_demon_example.m and the problem is solved.

Great routines, but to avoid instability with some images, is it possible to extend Options.Registration to include (1) only Translation and (2) only Translation and Resize (in x and y directions)?

Problem: when running the basic_demon_example, there is an error:
??? Index exceeds matrix dimensions.

Error in ==> movepixels at 27
I3=movepixels_2d_double(double(I1),double(T(:,:,1)),double(T(:,:,2)),double(mode));

Error in ==> basic_demon_example at 51
M=movepixels(I1,Tx,Ty);

Solution:
the 51th line in basic_demon_example.m:
M=movepixels(I1,Tx,Ty);
should be changed as follows:
T(:,:,1)=Tx;
T(:,:,2)=Ty;
M=movepixels(I1,T);
since the imput parameters didn't match properly.

How do you managed the 'out of memory' problem? I tried to run the program in a 64byte OS, memory 3G , the size of Moving image and Static Image are both 512*512*56 and the Matlab is 64bits.

I completed the test at line 161 of register_image.m, because I had 2 images 102x254 and 101x255 that need the resize step :
if(sum(abs(size(Istatic)-size(Imoving)))~=0)

Hi. I'm using your program to register MRI T1 and T2 images. I used [Ireg,Bx,By] = register_images(Imoving,Istatic);
it ran well at first, then it gave me "Undefined function or variable "resizepercentage".

so it must use a 1920M continuous memory space to create a huge array, I think ihis is the reason of "out of memory".
I tested you 3D Affine registration, but the registered Image(Ireg) is just identical to the Imoving image, and the deformation field Fx,Fy,Fz is all zeros. is there any mistake in your program?

### Dirk-Jan Kroon (view profile)

*fan,
When you optimize with the quasi newton method, you need memory space for 10 x the amount of unknowns.
In your case 256 * 256 * 128 * 3 (x y z) *10 = 251 658 240 values in the Estimated Hessian, and to store the transformation fields of x,y,z and both images 256 * 256 * 128 * 5 = 41 943 040 values.
In total you store 293 601 280 values, if all those values are in double we have to store 8x this amount in bytes, is 2.2GB ...
Thus be sure to also use Matlab 64bit ..

I tried to do 3D nonrigid registration use this program, but I found that it use very large of memory. I tried to run the program in a 64byte OS, memory is 3G , the size of Moving image and Static Image are both 256*256*128. but it run to "out of memory". I found that there a very large of memory not released, I don't know how much memory it should use,so you should do much more in memory management.

What a perfect work~~~ I try it and foud that the gradient of the image is calculated as [My,Mx]=gradient(M); But why you want to inverse the x and y? Since normally we use [Mx,My]=gradient(M); Maybe it is related to your 'Movepixels' function?

Your implemntation is based on the additive Demons, do you have any idea to add a compositive Demons? How do we calculate the composition of fields in Matlab? Thanks.

hi Dirk,
Ive been using demon's off late. Had a question on the forward and backward transformation functions and its use in conjuction with movepixels.m . Here is what I have: A deformation map (D) derived by registering a moving object (M) to a static object (S). I would now like to use D^-1 and M and solve for S.

Ive tried using movepixels.m and the bacward2forward.m, but as I see it, movepixels.m only considers static images as its inputs, which is not what I desire. Your comments and suggestions on this would be highly appreciated.

Denoising the data before registration is not really needed, but when done with an edge preserving filter, it will slightly improve the final results.

This is an excellent algorithm... I have a quick question. Is this algorithm affected by noise in the image? Will it make sense to denoise image before doing image registration?

10 Feb 2010 Toni

### Toni (view profile)

Just a quick question please!

So the pixel value from the moving image is transformed into the deformed moving one and the new position is e.g. x + Tx(x) , y + Ty(y), right? Does this mean that the old image is just updated with these values? what happens to the old pixel values where the pixel was transformed from and is the 'transformed to' pixel value the new value + the old one which was there already? And where does the interpolation take place?

Too much confusion....

*gx,

The equation "bins=round(numel(V)^(1/ndims(V)));" is not from literature. You can also use a fix bin size of 255, or so.

- Mutual information only works if there are overlaps in the histogram bins.
- More histogram bins will give better registration accuracy.
Thus this equation gives a good trade-off based on the number of available pixels ...

% Register image 1 to image 2
[I3,Tx,Ty]=demonregistration(I1,I2,[],true);

[h,w] = size(Tx) ;
Ty = zeros(h,w) ;
Tx = 5*ones(h,w) ;

I3=movepixels(I1,Tx,Ty);

but the result is not what I expected.
The image is shifted up instead of left~~~
Indeed what is Tx,Ty doing? is it a deformation field? forward or backward warping?

I am a student and want to learn something about nonrigid registration techniques. Can anybody tell me which transformation model it uses (is the Thin Plate Transformation the same as the B Spline?)

thanks a lot. I know what you mean. But what I mean is change the Idiff as something like this:
Idiff_color=M_color-S_color;
Idiff = Idiff_color(:,1)+Idiff_color(:,2)+Idiff_color(:,3) ; Idiff = Idiff/3 ;
where M_color is color version of M previous obtained.

* K K,
Color image registration example:
[I3,Tx,Ty]=demonregistration(rgb2gray(C1),rgb2gray(C2),[],false);
C3 = zeros(size(C1));
C3(:,:,1)=movepixels(C1(:,:,1),Tx,Ty);
C3(:,:,2)=movepixels(C1(:,:,2),Tx,Ty);
C3(:,:,3)=movepixels(C1(:,:,3),Tx,Ty);
imshow(C3,[]); title('Registered image');

I try to complie it with other machine, thanks. Would like to know if you have version for color image~ Thanks~

Hi, seems it is good. But I cannot complie it..is it due to the Matlab version? I have R2006a and Matlab 6.5. both cannot complie. Thanks a lot!

There is a small bug that images with odd valued dimensions now gives an error. Will be updated tomorrow...
