This report addresses the issues involved in developing a robust segmentation technique capable of finding the location and orientation of the cervical vertebrae in x-ray images. This technique should be invariant to rotation, scale, noise, occlusions and shape variability. A customized approach, based on the Generalized Hough transform (GHT), that captures shape variability and exploits shape information embedded in the accumulator structure to overcome noise and occlusions is proposed.
