Dense annotation of the skeleton

Dense annotation of the skeleton

In medical collaboration with:
Nuclear Medicine, Klinikum Rechts der Isar

Scientific Director: Bjoern Menze

Contact Person(s): Marie Bieth

Keywords: IBBM: image data processing


The automated annotation of bones that are visible in CT images of the skeleton is a challenging task which has, so far, been approached for only certain subregions of the skeleton, such as the spine or hip. In this project, we develop a novel annotation algorithm for automatically identifying structures and substructures in the whole skeleton. Our annotation algorithm makes use of recent advances in anatomical landmarks detection and is capable of generalizing local information about landmarks to a dense label map of the full skeleton by anatomical triangulation.
