Orientation of 3-D structures in medical images

A tensor-based moment function method and a principal-axes method were investigated for registering 3-D test images to a standard image using translation, scale, and orientation. These methods were applied at two image resolutions to test discretization effects. At the higher resolution, both methods were found to perform well in cases where the test image could be described as an affine transform of the standard. At low resolutions, however, and when the test image was not an affine transform of the standard, only the principal-axes-based method performed adequately. The problem of quantifying the left ventricular function from gated blood pool single-photo emission computed tomographic images is considered.<>
