However, although bony structures show high contrast in CT images, the segmentation and labelling of individual vertebrae is challenging. In this paper, we present a comprehensive solution(More)

Currently, most approaches are focused on the modeling and segmentation of individual objects. In case of object constellations, a simultaneous segmentation of the ensemble that uses not only prior knowledge of individual(More)
