Traditional approaches can be categorised as being either area based or landmark based and employing areas of image similarity or dissimilarity, respectively, to align the images. Zhang et al. [11] employ a modified GA in conjunction with the concept of mutual information taken from information theory. The assumption is that the mutual information should be at a maximum when the two images are perfectly aligned. There are many traditional approaches to optimisation of mutual information matching schemes, but these suffer from local maxima.

Neighbouring contours are coupled by an elastic force representing the physical relationship between anatomical regions. Segmented images are compared with hand-drawn outlines and provide encouraging results. 1. In the segmentation of MRI brain images using genetically guided clustering by Sasikala, Kumaravel and Ravikumar [4], the GA optimises the objective function of the standard fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithm to compensate for spatial intensity inhomogeneities, commonly associated with MRI. 2.

Towards a Real-Time Minimally-Invasive Vascular Intervention Simulation System,” Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on, 26, 1, 128–132, Jan. 2007 © 2007 IEEE) Visuo-spatial ability, required to undertake many everyday tasks, including making simple three-dimensional drawings, is an important indicator of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. Smith and Lones [47] use a form of genetic programming called implicit context representation Cartesian genetic programming to model the maturing visuo-spatial ability in children between the ages of 7 and 11 years.
