Medical image registration is the important technique in the clinical medicine field. A novel hierarchical registration method of the medical images based on multiscale information and contour line is proposed in the paper. At First, contour lines of the couple images are extracted based on the edge features obtained by Canny operator, and contour lines of the couple images are resample in order to reduce the calculation cost in the registration process. Secondly, the Principal Axes method is used to accomplish the rough registration based on the resampled contour lines. Thirdly, multiscale image serials obtained by down-sample transform are used to accomplish the couple images' fine registration. Experiment results show that the method not only can achieve more accurate registration results, but also can reduce the computational time greatly. The accurate registration results also can be achieved in the noisy environment.
