Segmentation of vertebral contours is an essential task in the design of imaging biomarkers for osteoporosis based on vertebra shape or texture. In this paper, we propose a novel segmentation technique which does not require manual operator intervention.
The proposed technique solves the segmentation problem in a hierarchical manner. In the first phase, a coarse estimate of the overall spine alignment and the
vertebra locations is computed using a sampling scheme. These samples are used to initialize a second phase of active shape model search, under a non-linear model of vertebra appearance....
