Most image registration algorithms do not output any information about the variance of the transformation estimates. Here we show that by perturbing input files we can recover this information without modifying the underlying algorithms. We demonstrate that local brain volume estimates can be improved by using the determinant of the average across the distribution of transformations. Our methods will improve morphological analyses, registration-based label alignment, and help find optimal registration parameters.
