The detection of double edges in X-ray images of lumbar vertebrae is of prime importance in the assessment of vertebral injury or collapse that may be caused by osteoporosis and other spine pathology. In addition, if the above double-edge detection process is conducted within an automatic framework, it would not only facilitate inexpensive and fast means of obtaining objective morphometric measurements on the spine, but also remove the human subjectivity involved in the morphometric analysis…

TLDR
A method for the delineation of vertebral contours that can also discriminate biconcave endplates on lateral radiographs is presented, by adapting the Mask-RCNN framework for vertebra instance edge-detection.
Vertebral pose estimation using horizontal gradient vector field
TLDR
This research proposes a novel approach to estimate vertebral pose by segmenting vertebral zone from full image using Vertical Projection Average with Normal Distribution, and introduces Gradient Vector Flow to identify background and foreground of image.

TLDR
An automatic approach to localize vertebrae and determine the vertebral morphometry based on a local phase symmetry measure shows promising results even on poor quality images, but with a lack of robustness among images.
Problems with six-point vertebral morphometry
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that six point vertebral morphometry can result to significant measurement errors, representing an overestimation of vertebral height and area, in cases showing projection effects and concealed endplate contours.
