Abstract

We propose the use of Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) as a method able to extract stable landmarks from 4D images and to quantify internal motion. We present a preliminary validation of the SIFT method relying on expert user identification of landmarks and then apply it to 4D lung CT and liver MRI data. Results demonstrate SIFT capabilities as an operator-independent feature tracking method.
