Detecting and monitoring changes in the human choroid play a crucial role in treating ocular diseases such as myopia. However, reliable segmentation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) images at the choroid-sclera interface (CSI) is notoriously difficult due to poor contrast, signal loss and OCT artefacts. In this paper we present blockwise registration of successive scans to improve stability also during complete loss of the CSI-signal. First, we formulated the problem as minimization of a regularized energy functional. Then, we tested our automated method for piecewise Intensity-based Choroidal rigid Registration using regularized block matching (ICR) on 20 OCT 3D-volume scan-rescan data set pairs. Finally, we used these data set pairs to determine the precision of our method, while the accuracy was determined by comparing our results with those using manually annotated scans.
