— Registration is frequently essential for integration brain information taken from different sensors, finding changes in images taken at different times or under different conditions, inferring 3D brain information from images. A registration procedure of brain can always be decomposed into three major parts: the problem statement, the registration paradigm and the optimization procedure. It is often helpful to remember that the three pillars are independent, since many papers do not describe them as such, often presenting the problem statement, paradigm and optimization procedure in a compounded way. Image registration is a crucial step in all image analysis tasks in which the final information is gained from the combination of various data sources like in image fusion, change detection, and multichannel image restoration.
