A method for automated detection of calcifications in the abdominal aorta from standard X-ray images is presented. Pixel classification based on local image structure is combined with a spatially varying prior that is derived from a statistical model of the combined shape variation in aorta and spine. Leave-one-out experiments were performed on 87 standard lateral lumbar spine X-rays, resulting in on average 93.7% of the pixels within the aorta being correctly classified.
