This paper describes a multimodal deformable image registration method on the GPU. It is a CUDA-based implementation of a paper by E. D'Agostino et. al, ''A viscous fluid model for multimodal non-rigid image registration using mutual information''. In addition, we incorporate an alternative metric as opposed to mutual information, called Bhattacharyya Distance, in the recent work of Lou and Tannenbaum. This paper is accompanied with the source code, input data, parameters and output data that the authors used for validating the algorithm.
