LCC log-Demons


LCClogDemons is an accurate and robust diffeomorphic registration framework based on stationary velocity fields (SVF) generalizing the log-Demons.
It implements the symmetric Local Correlation Coefficient (LCC) as a similarity measure, and thus it is unbiased with respect to local linear intensity bias of the images.

LCClogDemons is suited for both inter and intra-subject registration, and compares well with respect to state-of-art methods. Thanks to the stable and consistent scheme for the computation of the Jacobian determinant of the transformation, LCClogDemons represents a reliable instrument for Tensor Based Morphometry (TBM).

The average registration time for typical 3D images is around 30 minutes for a single core on a Xeon platform 2.66Ghz quad core, 4Gb RAM.

Download LCClogDemons V1.2. This version implements the penalisation of the similarity term via a confidence mask and corrects some bugs in the Jacobian computation.


Some useful standalone tools for working with stationary velocity fields, including SVFExponential that implements the recursive computation of the exponential of a stationary velocity field (SVF).
