2009 Summer Project Week HAMMER Registration
- UNC: Guorong Wu, Dinggang Shen
- GE : Xiaodong Tao, Jim Miller
We will continue developping and testing HAMMER registration algorithm implemented using ITK. The goal is to have an initial version ready by the end of the week that can be distributed within NA-MIC community for more extensive testing.
We will develop a Slicer module for the current implementation of the Hammer registration algorithm and test on images from multiple sources to make the algorithm robust and easy to use. Base line results and test will be generated.
Since summer project week in Boston, we have integrated HAMMER into Slicer as a moduler. Each component has been tested. We have made the tutorial to present how to use HAMMER in Slicer3. The source code is version controlled at NITRC site. The current development corresponds to the original Hammer algorithm that is based on tissue classification of T1 weighted images (as outlined on the first HAMMER paper).
We have released our registration method to the Na-mic society. Below is the list of users:
