The Dual-Bootstrap was original developed for retinal image registration.
It has been applied to thousands of image pairs with great success,
including multimodal pairs and pairs involving substantial longitudinal
changes. The algorithm succeeded an earlier algorithm based on matching
of landmarks alone. The executable for the Generalized Dual-Bootstrap
algorithm is available. A data set containing representative and challenging
retinal image pairs is also available for download and use in experiments.
