The Process Of Ct Image Classifier Optimization For Pedatric Spine Segmentation
MetadataShow full item record
Computed tomography (CT) is a method commonly used when generating images ofa spine diagnosed with scoliosis. The main reason for this common employment is found in itspracticality: the spine in the image is clearly visible. However, while portraying, a child is exposedto a dose of radiation. To eliminate a risk of children being negatively affected, this article is tryingto find the best technique of segmentation, that could be applied also while using magneticresonance imaging (MRI). It implements a 3D Slicer equipped with Support Vector Machines(SVM) Classifier plug-in to search for the best feature combination. Afterwards, segmentationresults are compared to ground truth image, where the area of hard tissue is determined. The aim isto get Dice coefficients as close as possible to 1.
