Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a framework that one could use to set optimized parameter values, while performing image registration using mutual information as a metric to be maximized. Our experiment details these steps for the registration of X-ray Computer Tomography (CT) images with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images. Selection of different parameters that influence the mutual information between two images is crucial for both accuracy and speed of registration. These implementation issues need to be handled in an orderly fashion by designing experiments in their operating ranges. The conclusions from this study seem vital towards obtaining allowable parameter range for a fusion software.
