Retrospective Image Registration Evaluation - service not working for me


I would like to evaluate the accuracy of a registration approach using

There were no error messages when I submitted transformations according to the guidelines. However, if I try to look at the results using
I don’t get any output. The firefox debugger gives me an error message (see below).

Are you aware of any problems with this service?

Your support would be welcome as I want to include the results in a paper and the deadline is approaching with surprising speed …

Unfortunately, The Insight Journal is in need of maintenance. I was unaware that RIRE is hosted on IJ - I guess that happened before I joined Kitware in 2014. Maybe somebody else can provide more information? @Stephen_Aylward @matt.mccormick @SteveJ

Regretfully we are going to have to discontinue supporting the RIRE
project. The RIRE project has resulted in many major contributions to the field (e.g., the recognition of mutual information as a significant improvement over landmark-based methods), but after 20+ years, it is now time for the community to use the more modern data that is now available from other challenges.

Our hope is to generate one final listing of results and to release all data, but this might not be feasible (since several of the packages on which the RIRE software relied are no longer maintained), and it will take some time.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I was hoping we could accommodate your request, but it doesn’t seem feasible for the foreseeable future.


first of all I would like to thank you for supporting the RIRE project for more than a decade.

I have been looking around but could not find a proper alternative. Could you please indicate which challenges and modern data for the quantitative evaluation of 3D rigid multi modality registration you refer to?
