Keywords and Phrases
Live wire segmentation tool; Osteophytes
"Computer-assisted image segmentation can be a challenging problem. In previous research, manual segmentation was used for the detection of key features in cervical and lumbar x-ray images. In this research, a semi-automated live wire technique is investigated and is evaluated for the detection of anterior osteophytes in lumbar vertebrae"--Abstract, leaf iii.
