Visualization of deformation fields in medical imaging

Image registration methods are often used in image-guided medical interventions to determine dislocation of the target organ. Advanced registration methods can determine not just a rigid transformation, but also organ deformations. Performance assessment of deformable image registration algorithms requires visualization of the resulting deformation fields, by means of colored image slices, isolines, arrows, deformed grids, etc.

3D Slicer ( is an open-source medical image analysis and visualization application that is used extensively in the Perk Lab. This application contains deformable image registration algorithms, but unfortunately it cannot visualize deformation fields.
