Paper Abstract

Our goal is to fuse multimodality imagery to enhance image-guided neurosurgery. Images that need to be fused must be registered. Registration becomes a challenge when the imaged object deforms between the times the images to be fused are taken. This is the case when 'brain-shift' occurs. We begin by describing our strategy for nonrigid registration via finite-element methods. Then, we independently discuss an image fusion strategy based on a model of the human visual system. We illustrate the operation of many components of the registration system and the operation of the fusion system.
