Medical Image Registration Based on Generalized Mutual Information and PSO-Simplex Search


Article Preview

A medical image registration algorithm based on Renyi generalized mutual information entropy information function and particle swarm - simplex search strategy is proposed in order to overcome the problem of local extremum in the target search. After the simulation of medical image data, the results show that the algorithm can get rapid and accurate registration results.
