Image registration is a fundamental medical image analysis task, and a wide variety of approaches have been proposed.
Deep-learning-based registration methods emerged as a fast alternative to conventional registration methods.
This paper identifies a variety of components that increase the performance of CNN-based algorithms for COVID-19 grading from CT images.
Random transformations are commonly used for augmentation of the training data with the goal of reducing the uniformity of the training samples.

Two datasets containing a total of 374 multi-detector CT scans from 355 patients were prepared and 4505 vertebrae have individually been annotated at voxel-level by a human-machine hybrid algorithm (https://osf. io/nqjyw/, https://osf. io/t98fz/).
To meet demands of the increasing interest in quantification of CAC, i. e. coronary calcium scoring, especially as an unrequested finding for screening and research, automatic methods have been proposed.
Chest CT scans made in lung cancer screening are suitable for identification of participants at risk of CVD.
Precise segmentation and anatomical identification of the vertebrae provides the basis for automatic analysis of the spine, such as detection of vertebral compression fractures or other abnormalities.
The results demonstrate that real-time quantification of CAC burden in chest CT without the need for segmentation of CAC is possible.
To identify patients with a functionally significant coronary artery stenosis, analysis is performed in several stages.
On soft filter reconstructions, the method achieved F1 scores of 0. 89, 0. 89, 0. 67, and 0. 55 for coronary artery, thoracic aorta, aortic valve and mitral valve calcifications, respectively.
