Although analysis of scoliotic deformity is still studied extensively by means of conventional roentgenograms, computer-assisted digital analysis may allow a faster, more accurate and more complete evaluation of the scoliotic spine. In this study, a new computer-assisted measurement method was evaluated. This method uses digital reconstruction images for(More)
Purpose Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is an established treatment for essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, and dystonia. DBS can be envisioned as a ‘pacemaker for the brain’; mild electrical stimuli are delivered to brain tissue, via implanted leads, to suppress unwanted activity and restore desired neuronal functions. It is common that postoperative CT(More)
Quantitative diagnosis of 3D scoliotic deformities depends on a number of dedicated measurements. Existing methods rely on the manual determination of a series of anatomical landmarks in X-ray images. We have developed an automatic method to alleviate the burden of this tedious task. Our method looks for a compromise between local image information and(More)
Quantitative analysis of 3D spinal deformities includes measurements related to individual vertebrae and measurements related to the overall shape of the spine. For the latter aspect, we propose to build a 3D model of the line that connects all vertebrae centres. We present two methods that allow reconstructing this vertebral body line in a quick and easy(More)
