Explanation: I'm not familiar with the medicine side, but registration is a term used in various fields of physics related to alignment of equipment (either performing multiple sequential steps on a single specimen or using multiple pieces of equipment at the same time). Unlike actual alignment, registration does not generally involve moving the equipment to make everything line up, but changing the signals or electronically shifting images so that everything is in the same place.
Another place is is used is in dot-matrix printers. The position of printing is different if the head moves left to right or right to left. So the registration is the adjustment to the timing of printing so that printing is aligned whichever direction the head is moving.
So it seems to me that this is talking about multiple camera heads that aren't perfeclty aligned, but which use some kind of signal processing to shift the images so that they come out looking at the same place.
