Vertebra segmentation and labeling

This algorithm segments the vertebrae in a CT scan, assigns anatomical labels to each detected vertebra and classifies vertebrae as completely or partially visible in the scan. The underlying method is an iterative fully convolutional neural network, details can be found in the article published in Medical Image Analysis.

The algorithm is trained with a wide variety of CT scans of adults, including cases with compression fractures and pedicle screws.

Please feel free to contact Nikolas Lessmann for help with trying out the algorithm, or if you would like to use it on a larger set of images.
