  • Femur Bone Volumetric Estimation from a Single X-Ray Image for Osteoporosis Diagnosis

    BMD (bone mineral density) is an indicator of osteoporosis that is serious disease, particularly for elderly. To calculate BMD, we need to measure volume by noninvasive way. This paper proposes noninvasive bone volume measurement method. A novel method is presented for a volumetric of femur bone which uses a computer-based procedure to estimate volumetric from a single x-ray image. We use an active contour model (ACM) for 2D segmentation. Volumetric technique that the thickness of femur region mapping to a pixels are determined using a physical model of image acquisition and knowledge base of the doctor. From above, we can construct a femur bone of each pixel. Therefore we can determine a volumetric of femur bone. In this paper, we also present a volumetric of femur bone, to evaluate results of the proposed method by actual experiments. We compare a BMD of the proposed method results with a BMD of CT-SCAN results

  • An Efficient Method for Segmentation of MRI Spine Images

    The study of the segmentation of MRI Spine Image is of crucial importance for computer aided medical image identifying and clinical studies of neurological pathology. Computer characterization of a vertebra or disk is of limited clinical value if that structure cannot be accurately segmented and identified. However, Manual operations of tracking these structures are so tedious that automated method of spine tracking and segmentation are in high demand. In this paper, a vertebral disks segmentation method is proposed. The method can locate and label the disks through locating the spinal cord with Hough Transform. The efficiency of the proposed method is demonstrated by experiments using real MR images provided by College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati.

  • Dengue fever (DF) and dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) symptoms analysis from an expert system perspective

    Describes an expert system framework to map out the clinical procedures observed by medical experts in clinical diagnosing and determination of the dengue fever (DF) and dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF). An early diagnosis of DF is very important for a better prognosis. The DF and DHF clinical symptoms were studied from an expert system perspective, and represented in a tree-like structure amenable to expert system applications. It is envisaged that such a framework, automated through expert system rule-chaining technology will aid medical personnel to carry out DF and DHF diagnostic procedures accurately, faster and efficient.

  • Vesselness-guided variational segmentation of cellular networks from 3D micro-CT

    Advances in imaging techniques lead to nondestructive 3D visualization of biological tissue at a sub-cellular scale. As a consequence, new demands emerge to segment complex structures. For instance, synchrotron radiation micro-CT, makes it possible to image the lacunar-canalicular porosity in bone tissue. This structure contains a dense network of slender channels interconnecting the cells. Their size (~300-600 nanometers in diameter) is at the limit of the acquisition system resolution (280 nm) making their detection difficult. In this work is proposed a variational region growing segmentation method adapted for cellular networks. To control the evolution of the segmentation through tubular structures a vesselness map is introduced in the expression of the functional to minimize. The method is tested on synthetic images and applied to experimental data.

  • Model-based analysis of computed radiographs

    Algorithms for computed radiography that allow a computer to recognize anatomy in medical imagery and to identify variations from normal in size, shape and density are discussed. The imagery is obtained from a Philips/Fuji computed radiography system that uses reusable photoluminescent image plates. The approach is general, allowing the use of the same system software for any modelled anatomy. Image-processing techniques are used to extract edges, regions, vertices and other relevant image features. These features trigger formation of hypotheses of the imaged bones and soft tissues. Multiple hypotheses of the size and orientation of the imaged anatomy are matched against stored 3-D models of the relevant anatomy, obtained from statistically valid population studies. A typical processing example from a normal hand is shown.<<ETX>>

  • Digitized quantification of angular periodontal bone defects

    A computer-based technique was developed to facilitate a more quantitative and objective interpretation of the radiographic image of periodontal bone defects. The evaluation of this automated diagnostic procedure is discussed. The procedure and a number of experienced dentists are compared with respect to the ability of each of them to rank a number of radiographs of bone lesions according to the severity of the lesion. The assessment based on the automated procedure proved to be at least comparable with the results of the group of experienced observers and probably better. It performed considerably better than the observers individually, and it shows no time-dependent variability of repeated assessments. The variability of repeated measurements applied to the same lesion site proved to be within clinically acceptable limits, although a further improvement will be helpful to increase the accuracy needed for longitudinal diagnostic investigations.<<ETX>>

  • Image-Based Strength Assessment of Bone

    A patient's bone status is commonly assessed by radiologic methods. Although the desired information concentrates on the probability of future fractures, the radiologic density is widely used as a surrogate for bone strength. There have been attempts to develop new parameters that have a closer relationship with bone strength, but the investigators tend to use a linear relationship between measured density and their strength-related parameter. We briefly discuss the background of mechanical deformation as it relates to bone and point out some of the basic principles involved in the assessment of strength. We then show that the relevant connection between strength and density makes use of the elastic modulus, which relates to density in a power law with an exponent of close to 2. We suggest modifications of some of the widely used strength-related parameter expressions that follow the theory more closely and will, thus, have the potential to better reflect the patient's bone status.

  • The associations between variables in large databases

    A database of 2126 consecutive cases where an ultrasound device was used to aid healing of bone fracture cases, was examined. All fractures had been fixed surgically first but appeared to exhibit delayed healing. After treatment with ultrasound, 7% of the fractures had still failed to heal. The aim was to predict those fractures that would not heal. Data collected from the treating physicians about the cases, was used. Although individual variables were associated with failure to heal, only four variables predicted the failure with statistical significance. The variables were patient age, time since fracture, fracture type and whether the fracture was in the humerus or not.
