Our collaboration work on spinal vertebrae identification and segmentation has been accepted to IEEE NSS-MIC.
Poay Hoon Lim, PhD student in University of Nottingham, showed a great success in developing algorithms for quickly identifying and segmenting spinal vertebrae from CT scans. The proposed method use mathematical morphology and level sets.
