This thesis describes the improvements of a feature-based non-rigid registration method that were essential for its application in radiotherapy. In addition, this thesis presents three practical applications of the improved method: 1) quantification of anatomical changes in 3D for head and neck cancer patients, 2) addition of dose distributions of two radiation treatment modalities for head and neck patients and 3) alignment of CT and MR scans of the liver by automatically segmenting and registering vessels
