Efficient graph cuts based extraction of vertebral column and ribs in lung MDCT images

A fully automatic novel algorithm based on graph cuts is presented for accurate and fast segmentation and isolation of human vertebral column and ribs in multi detector computed tomography (MDCT) images. The segmentation is followed by a two-step isolation method to remove mis-segmented parts such as the sternum, clavicle and scapula. The proposed algorithm… CONTINUE READING
