We developed an automated system that registers chest CT scans temporally. Our registration method matches corresponding anatomical landmarks to obtain initial registration parameters. The initial point-to-point registration is then generalized to an iterative surface-to-surface registration method. Our "goodness-of-ﬁt" measure is evaluated at each step in the iterative scheme until the registration performance is sufficient. We applied our method to register the 3D lung surfaces of 11 pairs of chest CT scans and report promising registration performance.
