Hi Manisha,

I have done some similiar experiments in the past.  I didnt use Elastix, but
a similar approach should work - generate the mask of pixels of interest,
and then feed that to the registration process as a mask.  However, I found
that the results were extremely dependent on the scale of the features used.
 For what its worth, these experiments and results are described in Chap 6
of my thesis.


However, since that time Benhimane et al took this idea in a somewhat
different direction.  Ultimately, i think the approach to this problem
described in their paper

 S. Benhimane, A. Ladikos, V. Lepetit, and N. Navab. Linear and quadratic
sets for template-based tracking. In Proceedings of the Conference on
Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR'07), 2007

is quite insightful and probably a better one.  As far as i can see, you
could generate a mask with their approach, and feed that mask into Elastix -
however, i have not actually tried this, it just seems to me it should work.

Good luck,

Rupert Brooks
