In this paper we introduce the Ladder Algorithm; a novel recurrent algorithm to detect repetitive structures in natural images with high accuracy using little training data. We then demonstrate the algorithm on the task of extracting vertebrae from whole spine magnetic resonance scans with only lumbar MR scans for training data. It is shown to achieve high performance with 99.8% precision and recall, exceeding current state of the art approaches for lumbar vertebrae detection in T1 and T2… Expand
