Secondly, we incorporate knowledge of the physiology, or how we expect the anatomy to change due to treatment. We can represent these changes using the Jacobian of the deformation, which describes the local size and type of change. This is used to regularise the registration, and can be incorporated simultaneously with the iterations of the registration. The final result is an accurate and robust registration result that is clinically useful for finding corresponding features on pre- and post-treatment datasets.
