I have developed a barebones command line driven registration tool in python. In phase 2 i will use this tool to evaluate the new metric that i put together from gradient and information thoeretic measures.

Step 1. register each of the 5 available vertebral bodies from all 200 given starting positions, using only the lateral fluoro view image.

Step 2. repeat step 1 using only the anterior fluoro view image.

Step 3. repeat step 1 using both anterior and lateral fluoro views.
