Image registration is regarded as an important tool for the analysis of temporal mammograms, specially for lesion detection. However, it has not been widely adopted due to the complexity of the problem and the limitations of the algorithms. This work evaluates the suitability of Diffeomorphic Demons for temporal mammographic registration. Analysis in a dataset of 440 images from 53 different patients (performing over 3300 registrations) shows a better registration quality using different objective measures compared to standard Rigid and Non-Rigid algorithms. In addition, a study of the effects of lesions in the registration is performed, indicating that registration results (specially for the Demons) can be potentially used for lesion detection.
