Deep learning based registration methods have emerged as alternatives to traditional registration methods, with competitive accuracy and significantly less runtime. Two different strategies have been proposed to train such deep learning registration networks: supervised training strategy where the model is trained to regress to generated ground truth deformation; and unsupervised training strategy where the model directly optimises the similarity between the registered images. In this work, we directly compare the performance of these two training strategies for cardiac motion estimation on cardiac cine MR sequences. Testing on real cardiac MRI data shows that while the supervised training yields more regular deformation, the unsupervised more accurately captures the deformation of anatomical structures in cardiac motion.
