Abstract

The study and monitoring of cancellous bone is particularly important for medical image analyses which are generally related to orthopedics field. In order to understand more about the cancellous bone, a three-dimensional (3D) imaging method is mainly being used for visualizing the morphological data of the bone. This study furthermore presents a new development of classifier to predict the failure of trabecular bone structure from the analyses of the morphological parameters. More particularly, the present study relates to the methods and systems for 3D object classification using Bayes decision rules. Classification method in this study is considered as an important approach or tool for recognizing the cancellous bone failure such Osteoporosis’s conditions in the difference bone parts of the body. Moreover, structural information of the cancellous bone failure is also attained from the classification which is varies depending to the bone parts. This algorithm are tested and validated by using the morphological datasets of the trabecular bone structure taken from tibia bone specimen. The results of this algorithm are compared to the original morphological datasets for observing the accuracy of the results with the original datasets. These studies in advance have provided some add up value as part of the function in the commercial high visualization and analysis software system for medical diagnosis.
