Medical Image Registration Using Curvelets

Ankita Anupama, Som Shankar Sahoo


As Medical Image Registration using wavelets has already been studied and talked about by many researchers. Thesis started to find out the possibility to deploy next generation wavelets (i.e. complex wavelets or curvelets) in the field of medical image registration. Wavelets are suffering from some problems like shift variance, lack of phase information, oscillations and aliasing. So, these shortcomings pose difficulty in processing of geometric image features like ridges and edges. Medical images are basically textured images and contain ridges and edges. These problems are dealt with curvelets.
