A novel algorithm for computer-assisted measurement of cervical length from transvaginal ultrasound images

Abstract

The cervical length measured by transvaginal ultrasound is a proven clinical tool for predicting premature birth. The standard manual measurement of the cervix is limited by variability in the technique. In this research, we develop the first computer algorithm that is able to identify the anatomic landmarks of the cervix on a transvaginal ultrasound image… (More)
