SUMMARY
Performing orthopaedic measurements is still a time-consuming task which is subject to intra and inter-observer variability. With quantitative imaging in terms of an automatic segmentation of the bones and joints and subsequent derivation of relevant measurements it is possible to remove this bottleneck from the clinical routine. The major difficulties resulting from the challenging image data are poor image quality resulting, a high degree of anatomical variability, and artificial object within the radiographs. This work presents a new method that addresses these challenges and automatically determines objective and reproducible measurements. The method has been evaluated on clinical data and compared against the readings of an experienced orthopaedist.
AUTHOR BIO
André Gooßen graduated at the Hamburg University of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering. His doctoral studies focused on radiographic image segmentation and interpretation for quantitative imaging in medical applications. Currently, André Gooßen is a scientist at the Philips Research laboratories in Hamburg, where he elaborates on quantitative methods for women's health and orthopaedics.
