Deep Learning Based Rib Centerline Extraction and Labeling

19 Sep 2018Matthias LengaTobias KlinderChristian BürgerJens von BergAstrid FranzCristian Lorenz

Automated extraction and labeling of rib centerlines is a typically needed prerequisite for more advanced assisted reading tools that help the radiologist to efficiently inspect all 24 ribs in a CT volume. In this paper, we combine a deep learning-based rib detection with a dedicated centerline extraction algorithm applied to the detection result for the purpose of fast, robust and accurate rib centerline extraction and labeling from CT volumes...
