Image registration is an important enabling technology in medical image analysis. The current emphasis is on development and validation of application-specific non-rigid techniques, but there is already a plethora of techniques and terminology in use. In this paper we discuss the current state of the art of non-rigid registration to put on-going research in context and to highlight current and future clinical applications that might benefit from this technology. The philosophy and motivation underlying non-rigid registration is discussed and a guide to common terminology is presented. The core components of registration systems are described and outstanding issues of validity and validation are confronted.
