Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (ANFH) is a common clinical disorder in the orthopedic field. Traditional approaches to study the extent of ANFH rely primarily on manual segmentation of clinical magnetic resonance images (MRI). However, manual segmentation is insufficient for quantitative evaluation and staging of ANFH. This paper presents a new computerized approach for segmentation of necrotic lesions of the femoral head. The segmentation method consists of several steps including… CONTINUE READING
