Abstract

This paper proposes a method to match diffusion tensor magnetic resonance images (DT-MRI) through the large deformation diffeomorphic metric mapping of tensor fields on the image volume, resulting in optimizing for geodesics on the space of diffeomorphisms connecting two diffusion tensor images. A coarse to fine multi-resolution and multi-kernel-width scheme is detailed, to reduce both ambiguities and computation load. This is illustrated by numerical experiments on DT-MRI brain and images.
