To diagnose the osteoporosis accurately, the bone mineral density (BMD) measurements of the vertebral bodies (VBs) are required. In this paper, we propose a new segmentation and registration method in order to assist the BMD measurements and fracture analysis (FA) accurately. In this experiment, image appearance and shape information of VBs are used. Our shape model is required to be registered to the testing image to avoid user interaction(s). Our proposed framework has four phases: i) the… CONTINUE READING
