In this study, a multilayer feedforward, back-propagation artificial neural network is implemented to identify the classification patterns of the scoliotic spinal deformity. At first step the simplified three-dimensional spine model is constructed from coronal and sagittal X-ray images. The features of the central axis curve of the spinal deformity patterns in 3D space are extracted by the total curvature analysis. The discrete form of the total curvature, including the curvature and the… CONTINUE READING
