The visualisation and subsequent quantification of the inner bone structure plays an important role for better understanding the disease- or drug-induced changes of the bone in the context of osteoporosis. Scaling indices (SIM) are well suited to quantify these structures on a local level, especially to discriminate between plate-like and rod-like structural elements. Local filters based on wavelets (WVL) are a standard technique in texture analysis. So far, they are mainly used for two… CONTINUE READING
