Abstract: In point-based registration between the patient and the image, skin-affixed markers are attached to the patient's skin. Although registration accuracy is relatively high in the region around the markers, the accuracy decreases at deeply seated targets in the body, in proportion to the distance from the skin where the markers are attached. In this study, we propose a method that uses anatomical landmarks near the target as additional points for the registration to decrease target registration error (TRE). In t…
