Automatic Judgement of Spinal Deformity from Moire Images Employing Asymmetry of Local Centroids Location

A technique is described for classifying abnormal cases and normal cases in automatic spinal deformity analysis by computer based on moire topographic images of human backs. Displacement of local centroids is evaluated statistically between the left-hand side and the right-hand side of the moire images. The technique was applied to real subjects images in… (More)
