Perspective matching using the EM algorithm [chapter]

A. D. J. Cross, E. R. Hancock
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Modelmatching is realised using a variant of the EM algorithm. This involves coupling the correspondence matching of the Delaunay triangulation to the recovery of the point deformation parameters.  ...  This paper describes a new approach to perspective matching which simultaneously exploits both rigidity-structure and point distribution information.  ...  Rigidity-structure is represented by a Delaunay triangulation [1] over the point sets being matched. We recover the correspondence matches using a variant of the EM algorithm.  ...

A novel approach for the registration of 2D portal and 3D CT images for treatment setup verification in radiotherapy [chapter]

Ravi Bansal, Lawrence H. Staib, Zhe Chen, Anand Rangarajan, Jonathan Knisely, Ravinder Nath, James S. Duncan
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed algorithm can be used, in general, for registering a high resolution image to a low resolution image.  ...  The minimax entropy algorithm proposed in this paper evaluates appropriate entropies in order to segment the portal image and to find the registration parameters iteratively.  ...  Thus, the EM algorithm may be used to estimate both the pose parameters and the segmentation labels. However, there are several problems with the EM approach that restrict its use in this problem.  ...
