A Localisation-Segmentation Approach for Multi-label Annotation of Lumbar Vertebrae using Deep Nets [article]

Anjany Sekuboyina, Alexander Valentinitsch, Jan S. Kirschke, and Bjoern H. Menze
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The first stage employs a multi-layered perceptron performing non-linear regression for locating the lumbar region using the global context.  ...  Aided with practical data augmentation for training, our approach is highly generalisable, capable of successfully segmenting both healthy and abnormal vertebrae (fractured and scoliotic spines).  ...  It is obvious that such models cannot generalise to a fractured vertebra or a deformed spine.  ...

Conclusions-Using our modified DCRA algorithm, it is not necessary to exclude vertebrae with fracture or other deformity from disc height measurements as in the standard DCRA.  ...  Thus, we developed and tested a modified DCRA algorithm that does not depend on vertebral shape.  ...  eliminates the need to exclude fractured or deformed vertebrae.  ...
