Deformable Image Registration is a complex optimization algorithm with the goal of modeling a non-rigid transformation between two images. A crucial issue in this field is guaranteeing the user a robust but computationally reasonable algorithm. We rank the performances of four stopping criteria and six stopping value computation strategies for a log domain deformable registration. The stopping criteria we test are: (a) velocity field update magnitude, (b) vector field Jacobian, (c) mean squared error, and (d) harmonic energy. Experiments demonstrate that comparing the metric value over the last three iterations with the metric minimum of between four and six previous iterations is a robust and appropriate strategy. The harmonic energy and vector field update magnitude metrics give the best results in terms of robustness and speed of convergence. © 2011 IEEE.
