Auto Detection Of Compression Fracture
Vertebral Compression Fracture (VCF) is a major complication of osteoporosis that occurs with aging. A fall, cough, or heavy lifting can cause fracture of the back bones. According to Google’s statistics, there are more than 200,000 cases in the US per year.
Airdoc designed a cascade structure by combining deep neural network and image processing technique to segment the vertebral column and detect abnormal pieces. The model is trained on large scale CT and MRI images, labeled by experienced doctors. By using the segmentation of the vertebral column, Airdoc has also been developing algorithms to recognize spine degenerative disease.
