Abstract

Cobb angle measurements give orthopedic surgeons an idea of the severity of spinal deformities. These measurements are taken manually, and the results vary from one observer to another. A fully automatic technique is proposed using several different digital image processing techniques. We describe the methods to extract spinal information from radiographs… (More)
