Abstract The accurate comparison of inter-individual 3D image datasets of brains requires warping techniques to reduce geometric variations. In this study we use a point-based method of warping with weighted sums of displacement vectors, which is extended by an optimization process. To improve the practicability of 3D warping, we investigate 3D operators as landmark detectors for the applicability to our image datasets. The combined approach was tested on 3D autoradiographs of brains of Mongolian gerbils. The warping function is distance-weighted with landmark-specific weighting factors. These weighting factors are optimized by a computational evolution strategy. Within this optimization process the quality of warping is quantified by the sum of spatial differences of manually predefined registration points (registration error). The described approach combines a highly suitable procedure to detect landmarks in brain images and a point-based warping technique, which optimizes local weighting factors
