Estimação da maturidade óssea utilizando dimensões dos centros de ossificação extraídas por SNAKES - modelos de contornos ativos

C.J. OliveteE. L. L. Rodrigues

Skeletal age assessment is one of the important features in analyze of carpal radiography in the pediatric radiology area. Skeletal age can be assessed using a set of features extracted from the hand bones ossification centers. The methods most widely used for bone age determination presents high complexity degree for estimation and this task is extremely complex and time-consuming producing results with high charge of personal interpretation. This goal of the present work is presents a methodology that work in an automatic and simplified mode, producing results exempt of the subjective human analyze for the bone growth accompaniment. The images segmentation was carried out using Active Contours Snake method (Snakes). The results obtained are very promising, getting high-rate of concordance with the medicals reports mean.
