In this paper, we assess the impact of mesh generation on Non-Rigid Registration of brain MR images. The solution accuracy and the speed of finite element solvers depend on how well the underlying mesh approximates the surface of the biological object (fidelity) and how well the elements of this mesh are shaped (quality). Fidelity and quality, however, are two contradicting requirements, as increased fidelity usually implies poor quality and vice versa. In this paper, we evaluate three public mesh generators and examine how this quality-fidelity trade-off affects the accuracy and the speed of non-rigid registration solvers for brain images.
