I have been playing around with “turning the knobs” for registration for some time now, but I feel most of the time it is still a black-box to me. I wonder if I lack a good foundation for image registration. I was wondering if there are any good books you could recommend on the subject? Or is it best to try and wade through all the registration papers?
In terms of ITK related resources, I have already found these recommended in another post Image registration metric derivative
I suppose it does not help that I am trying to register optically cleared brains imaged with light sheet microscopy (contrast of internal structures seems worse than that of regular human MRI/CT which I assume ITK registration was optimised for). But this stuff is definitely hard - well done to those of you who developed ITK implementation of this!
