A New 3D Segmentation Methodology for Lumbar Vertebral Bodies for the Measurement of BMD and Geometry

19 May 2017 Andre Mastmeyer Klaus Engelke Willi Kalender

In this paper a new technique is presented that extracts the geometry of lumbar vertebral bodies from spiral CT scans. Our new multi-step segmentation approach yields highly accurate and precise measurement of the bone mineral density (BMD) in different volumes of interest which are defined relative to a local anatomical coordinate systems...
