Abstract: An automatic surface-based rigid registration system using a neural network representation is proposed. The system has been applied to register human bone structures for image-guided surgery. A multilayer perceptron neural network is used to construct a patient-specific surface model from pre-operative images. A surface representation function derived from the resultant neural network model is then employed for intra-operative registration. The optimal transformation parameters are obtained via an optimization process. This segmentation/registration system achieves sub-voxel accuracy comparable to that of conventional techniques, and is significantly faster. These advantages are demonstrated using image datasets of the calcaneus and vertebrae. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
