Abstract: Aortic valve disorder is one of the common diseases affecting elderly people. To provide visual assessment and improve success of surgical treatment, a segmentation technique equipped with a reliable statistical shape model is required. This in turn requires reliable dense correspondences establishment. This paper develops a reliable 3D registration technique targeting aortic region. Given a few easily identifiable land- mark correspondences, our technique obtains a much denser set of point correspondences across a set of 3D aortic sources meshes to the target mesh. We proposes to use geodesic interpolation, a new mesh based similarity metric, and a two-stage local transformation to develop a better registration technique for 3D aortic meshes. It results in better corre- spondences compared to existing work, shows an average Hausdorff distance of 3.65mm and point-to-mesh distance of 0.41mm. Visual comparison is also provided to assess the quality of the point correspondences.
