The Delineation of Neck of Femur in Pelvic X-ray Images

P. Ligisha, Dr.S. Bhavani and Dr.K.G. Dharani

This paper deals with the detection of NOF fracture using statistical curve-fitting and Artificial Neural Network. It is difficult to detect NOF in pelvic X-ray images due to the complexity in the visual appearance of the pelvic region. An automatic algorithm is proposed in which statistical curve-fitting parameters are used for tracing the Shenton line in the pelvic image. The Artificial Neural Network is trained with Goodness of Fit parameters calculated using the statistical curve-fitting method for detecting the fracture in the image. The combination of statistical curve-fitting and ANN gives an accuracy of 96%.
