Research output: Thesis › Thesis fully internal (DIV) › Academic
In this thesis new image analysis methods are discussed to determine the curvature of scoliotic patients characterised by the Cobb angle and to enhance the vertebral parts based on features from a frontal X-ray image. Chapter 1 provides some background information on scoliosis, how to diagnose it, the treatment options and the problems related to spinal X-ray images. Then, a problem definition is formulated and a general block diagram of a proposed solution is explained briefly, followed by a detailed explanation of each part. The knowledge of the vertebral geometry helps us to have a better understanding about the relevant features of a vertebra so that we can develop an image analysis system that can detect those features ...
