MR Image fusion is desired in various image-guide breast surgeries. However it often suffers from the difficulty on dealing with large deformation of breast. This paper presents a novel method for efficiently modeling and inferring the physical parameters, including gravity, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, etc, which are important elements for handling the biomechanical deformations of breast with finite element model. Our method consists of two major steps: 1) deformation modeling and 2) non-rigid registration. The former builds a deformable implicit polynomial (DIP) model to encode the physical parameters according to deformation. The latter fast registers the prior DIP to the online breast image such that the image fusion can be achieved. Experimental results demonstrate the good performance of our method.
