A multicomponent registration technique has been proposed to perform image normalization in the presence of largely deformed ventricles in the mouse brain. By employing multicomponent similarity metrics, the proposed technique combines information from multiple filtered and contrast-enhanced copies of the original images in the optimization process. We apply the proposed method to a mouse brain dataset with enlarged ventricles after focal ischaemic stroke, and compare the performance with single-component registration.
