During an interventional neuroradiology exam, knowing the exact location of the catheter tip with respect to the patient can dramatically help the physician. An image registration between digital subtracted angiography (DSA) images and a volumic pre-operative image (magnetic resonance or computed tomography volumes) is a way to infer this important information. This mono-patient multimodality matching can be reduced to finding the projection matrix that transforms any voxel of the volume onto the DSA image plane. This modelization is unfortunately not valid in the case of distorted images, which is the case for DSA images. A classical angiography room can now generate 3D X-ray angiography volumes (3DXA). Since the DSA images are obtained with the same machine, it should be possible to deduce the projection matrix from the sensor data indicating the current machine position. We propose an interpolation scheme, associated to a pre-operative calibration of the machine that allows..
