Abstract

X-ray bone images are used in the areas such as bone age assessment, bone mass assessment and examination of bone fractures. Medical image analysis is a very challenging problem due to large variability in topologies, medical structure complexities and poor image modalities such as noise, low contrast, several kinds of artifacts and restrictive scanning methods. Computer aided analysis leads to operator independent, subjective and fast results.
