A 3D Deformable Magnetic Resonance Textbook Based on Elasticity

Gary E. Christensen, Michael I. Miller, and Michael Vannier

A high-dimensional 3D elastic deformation procedure for accommodating local shape differences between a deformable textbook and a study was developed. This algorithm was implemented using the massively-parallel DECmpp 12000Sx/Model 200 yielding 0.8 GFLOP computational performance. Algorithm performance was assessed subjectively by comparing the facial soft tissue surface and anatomical structure for an individual study with the deformed textbook, noting their high degree of similarity.
