Several strategies for locally-adaptive regularization in past, current and future work are described including related research from optical flow in computer vision. In particular recent advances to the Demons framework and discrete optimization strategies are presented that do no require any specific segmentation masks and led to substantial improvements over baseline approaches. A reduction target registration error with respect to expert landmarks and visually plausible sliding in the computed motion fields can be reached using these methods. The great clinical impact of a suitable handling of motion discontinuities is highlighted and future research directions towards advanced graph-based edge priors through supervised learning are presented to the reader.
