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 ...
