In case of an automated image-based analysis of the spinal column used for many orthopedic applications, an exact segmentation of the individual vertebras is the basis. The spinal column is of great interest, because the scanned image area can be identified via the individual vertebras. In order to extract the relevant information from the image data obtained via computer tomography (CT), previous knowledge is needed. One approach for an automated analysis of medical image data is therefore the use of anatomic models. In Philips research laboratories in Hamburg, surface models of all presacral vertebras are developed and integrated in the segmentation process.
