We describe a snake-type method for shape registration in 2D and 3D, by fitting a given polygonal template to an acquired image or volume data. The snake aspires to fit itself to the data in a shape which is locally As-Similar-As-Possible (ASAP) to the template. Our ASAP regulating force is based on the Moving Least Squares (MLS) similarity deformation. Combining this force with the traditional internal and external forces associated with a snake leads to a powerful and robust registration algorithm, capable of extracting precise shape information from image data.
