Abstract

Registration is a decisive, primary step in image analysis that helps to obtain absolute information by combining multiple data sources. This pre-processing task is one of the most essential measures in medical images making them useful for different applications such as classification, change detection and image fusion. With the advent of multiple modalities that yield numerous images, registering them becomes a challenging issue. Conventional approaches for image registration incident a meagre performance due to their vulnerability in scale and intensity variations. In this paper we propose an optimized FUZZY- SIFT Matching technique for image registration. Initially Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) is applied to extract key points from images. Images are segmented to regions based on Fuzzy C-means clustering approach which produces clusters. Key points are matched based on their gradient orientations from the clusters of both reference image and target image and finally image warping is performed by applying piecewise linear transformation function. Experimental results indicate that the proposed method improves the match performance compared to other usual methods in terms of correct-match rate and aligning accuracy.
