We present an algorithm for fast automatic registration of spatially overlapping radiographs. It possesses strong robustness against noise, feature masking and feature displacement. Pivotal for this algorithm is an actual interpretation of the stitching feature instead of a simple detection. The proposed method has been evaluated on 3000 clinical radiographs and proved to be a powerful enhancement of established automatic registration algorithms.
