In Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA), non-rigid registration of the mask and contrast images to reduce the motion artifacts is a challenging problem. In this paper, we have proposed a novel stratified registration framework for DSA artifact reduction. We use quad-trees to generate the non-uniform grid of control points and obtain the sub-pixel displacement offsets using Random Walker (RW). We have also proposed a sequencing logic for the control points and an incremental LU decomposition approach that enables reuse of the computations in the RW step. We have tested our approach using clinical data sets, and found that our registration framework has performed comparable to the graph-cuts (at the same partition level), in regions wherein 95% artifact reduction was achieved. The optimization step achieves a speed improvement of 4.2 times with respect to graph-cuts.
