Simultaneous Registration and Bias Correction of Brain Intra-operative MR Images
Intra-operative MR imaging is an emerging tool for image guided (neuro)surgery. Due to the small size of the magnets and the short acquisition time, the images produced by such devices are often subject to distortions. In this work, we show the particular case of images provided by an ODIN device (Odin Medical Technologies, Newton, MA 02458, USA). Such images suffer from geometric distortions and an important bias field in the luminance. In order to simultaneously correct these deformations, we propose to register a preoperative ODIN image with a diagnosis MR high resolution image while compensating the bias field.
