In this paper, we describe how Active Shape Models (ASMs) have been used to accurately and robustly locate vertebrae in lateral Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) images of the spine. DXA images are of low spatial resolution, and contain signiicant random and structural noise, providing a diicult challenge for object location methods. All vertebrae in… (More)
