Abstract—Brain MRI registration has many useful applications in group analysis and morphometry, yet accurate registration across different neuropathological groups remains challenging. Structure specific information, or anatomical guidance, can be used to initialize and constrain registration to improve accuracy and robustness. Here a multistructure diffeomorphic registration approach that uses concurrent subcortical and cortical shape matching to guide the overall registration. Also demonstrate that a mean shift algorithm with multistructure registration accounts for greater inter subject variability and provides more sensitive tensor based morphometry measurements.

Keywords— Atlases morphometry, brain registration, diffeo- morphisms, MRI.
