Paper Abstract

In this study, we propose to use an unsupervised deep learning-based method to directly register the MRI to CT with the help of synthetic MRI (sMRI). Our synthesis results showed that CT-generated sMRI could partially restore soft-tissue contrast in the pelvic region, which helps to improve the image registration accuracy near the prostate, rectum and bladder. Additionally, sMRI has similar intensity value to the true MRI which make it easier to register the images. The registration network was trained in an unsupervised manner, meaning ground truth DVF is not required. The trained network can predict the deformation vector field (DVF) in a single shot. After registration, the structural similarity index metric (SSIM) and peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) between the deformed sMRI and the fixed MRI were on average 0.79 and 25.15 dB respectively.
