Sarang Joshi #13 Mathematical Foundations of Computational Anatomy transformations constructed from the group of diffeomorphisms of the underlying coordinate system –Diffeomorphisms: one-to-one onto (invertible) and differential transformations. Preserve topology. Anatomical variability understood via transformations –Traditional approach: Given a family of images construct registration transformations that map all the images to a single template image or the Atlas. How can we define an Average anatomy in this framework: The template estimation problem!!
Sarang Joshi #14 Large deformation diffeomorphisms Space of all Diffeomorphisms forms a group under composition: Space of diffeomorphisms not a vector space. Small deformations, or Linear Elastic registration approaches ignore this.
Sarang Joshi #15 Large deformation diffeomorphisms. infinite dimensional Lie Group. Tangent space: The space of smooth vector valued velocity fields on. Construct deformations by integrating flows of velocity fields.
Sarang Joshi #16 Relationship to Fluid Deformations Newtonian fluid flows generate diffeomorphisms: John P. Heller "An Unmixing Demonstration," American Journal of Physics, 28, (1960). For a complete mathematical treatment see: –Mathematical methods of classical mechanics, by Vladimir Arnold (Springer)
Sarang Joshi #17 Metric on the Group of Diffeomorphisms: Induce a metric via a sobolev norm on the velocity fields. Distance defined as the length of geodesics under this norm. Distance between e, the identity and any diffeomorphis is defined via the geodesic equation: Right invariant distance between any two diffeomorphisms is defined as:
Sarang Joshi #18 Simple Statistics on Interesting Spaces: Average Anatomical Image Given N images use the notion of Fréchet mean to define the Average Anatomical image. The Average Anatomical image: The image that minimizes the mean squared metric on the semi-direct product space.
Sarang Joshi #19 Simple Statistics on Interesting Spaces: Averaging Anatomies The average anatomical image is the Image that requires Least Energy for each of the Images to deform and match to it: Can be implemented by a relatively efficient alternating algorithm.
