Abstract

The present invention provides a method and apparatus for generating inversely related forward and reverse image transformations in any image registration technique with ambiguous correspondence based upon the joint estimation of the transformation. Accordingly, two image data sets are received, a source and a target. Current sets of forward and reverse displacement fields are initialized. From the current set of forward and reverse displacement fields, the consistent forward transformation and the consistent reverse transformation are jointly estimated. These transformations are outputted.
