I stumbled across this while trying to solve the same problem (determine rotation between 2 images). Thanks to those who posted here. You should only need the radon projection along one angle for one of the images. Also, the use of the FFT confused me so I have used it at the end to do the correlation in a more familiar way to me. Code snippet:
thetas = [-45 : 45]; % Enter desired range
P1 = radon(Image1,0); % Only 1 projection is needed for reference image P2 = radon(Image2,thetas); % All projections to be considered for the other image
% Compare the projections for Image2 to the projection for Image1 using cross % correlation. The most correlated projection gives the amount of image rotation.
for ii = 1:length(thetas) b = P2(:,ii); this_correlation = abs(ifft(P1.*conj(b))); angle_scores(ii) = max(max(this_correlation)); end

However, what is the purpose of "fft" after radon transform? Can we skip the "fft" part? Thanks. > > Y.L.

One is the reference image and the other is the rotated version of the reference image. I would like to find what is the angle by which the 2nd image is rotated wrt 1st one.

You can use your favorite shift measurement technique (e.g. correlation) to calculate the shift, and hence the rotation. Also, translation will not affect P1 and P2.
