Consistency of MR scan planning is very important for diagnosis, especially in multi-site trials and follow-up studies, where disease progress or response to treatment is evaluated. Accurate manual scan planning is tedious and requires skillful operators. On the other hand, automated scan planning is difficult due to relatively low quality of survey images ("scouts") and strict processing time constraints. This paper presents a novel method for automated planning of MRI scans of the spine… CONTINUE READING
