The fundamental challenges associated with the above-stated tasks arise from the … The data has been provided by the Department of Radiology at University of Washington. This set contains 242 spinal CT scans, 1 which include highly deformed and pathological cases; it was provided by Glocker et al. Clinical datasets raise many difficulties for automatic methods. This task requires detecting and indexing a long sequence in a 3-D image, and both image feature extraction and sequence modeling are needed to address the problem. The first challenge concerns full vertebrae segmentation, the second challenge is on vertebrae localization and identification. USA.gov. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
