TL;DR: Learn to predict displacement Jacobian and residual vectors for improving second-order least-squares solution for image registration.
Abstract: We propose to capture large deformations in few iterations by learning a registration model with differentiable Gauss-Newton and compact CNNs that predict displacement gradients and a suitable residual function. By incorporating a sparse Laplacian regulariser, structural / semantic representations and weak label-supervision we achieve state-of-the-art performance for abdominal CT registration.
