bUnwarpJ scheme: bidirectional Unwarping in Java.

This ImageJ/Fiji plugin performs 2D image registration based on elastic deformations represented by B-splines. The invertibility of the deformations is enforced through a consistency restriction.

For a quick start, you can have a look at the video tutorial (awarded at the Second ImageJ User & Developer Conference).


General Description

bUnwarpJ is an algorithm for elastic and consistent image registration developed as an ImageJ plugin. It performs a simultaneous registration of two images, A and B. Image A is elastically deformed in order to look as similar as possible to image B, and, at the same time, the "inverse" transformation (from B to A) is also calculated so a pseudo-invertibility of the final deformation could be guaranteed. Two images are given as a result: the deformed versions of A and B images.

Downloads

The latest stable distribution of bUnwarpJ can always be found included within Fiji and the latest released JARs are available in the GitHub repository. If you detect any bug, please feel free to contact the maintainer. Any feedback will be very appreciated.

API documentation

The API documentation can be reached online.

Installation

In Fiji, bUnwarpJ comes installed by default. In ImageJ, you must simply download the latest bUnwarpJ_.jar to the Plugins folder of ImageJ, restart ImageJ and there will be a new "Registration > bUnwarpJ" command in the Plugins menu.

To execute bUnwarpJ as a macro or from the command line, see the description in the User Manual.
