Objective: In the course of clinical treatment, several medical media are required by a physician in order to provide accurate and complete information about a patient. Medical image registration techniques can provide a richer diagnosis and treatment information to doctors and to provide a comprehensive reference source for the researchers involved in image registration as an optimization problem. Methods: The essence of image registration is associating two or more different images spatial

Its core purpose is finding the conversion relationship between different images. Result: The major step of image registration includes the change of geometrical dimensions, and change of the image of the combination, image similarity measure, iterative optimization and interpolation process. Conclusion: The contribution of this review is sort of related image registration research methods, can provide a brief reference for researchers about image registration.
