Automatic segmentation of spinal cord MRI using symmetric boundary tracing

, : Automatic segmentation of spinal cord MRI using symmetric boundary tracing. IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine 14(5): 1275-1278

We develop an adaptive active contour tracing algorithm for extraction of spinal cord from MRI that is fully automatic, unlike existing approaches that need manually chosen seeds. We can accurately extract the target spinal cord and construct the volume of interest to provide visual guidance for strategic rehabilitation surgery planning.
