Hi RK,

Take a look at the subclasses of vtkWarpTransform shown here:

The vtkGridTransform and vtkBSplineTransform subclasses probably already do
what you need, i.e. both of them can be used to invert a 3D displacement
field image.  The vtkGridTransform method is easier to use, while the
vtkBSplineTransform provides a smoother result.

More information about the vtkBSplineTransform is provided at the following
link (use the "Download Paper" button).  In order to use this class, the
displacement field image must be converted into spline coefficients via the
vtkBSplineCoefficients class.  The following code shows how
vtkBSplineCoefficients can be used for this purpose:

A description of the implementation of vtkWarpTransform and
vtkGridTransform is provided in the following publication. Apologies for
the paywall.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12631510
