Computer-Aided Detection Systems, Image, Spine, Skin Surface

Definition : Computer-aided detection systems that analyze digital information and in-vivo images of the spine using devices that assess the spine structure from the skin surface without using ionizing radiation. Some of these systems use an electromechanical sensor that is displaced along the spine from previously identified marks and send the information to a computer for real-time assessment, display, and/or printing images of the spine. These systems use a dedicated software containing algorithms that assess the spine configuration and its abnormalities. Systems using other techniques, such as those based on electromagnetic signals with fixed sensors located on several points of the skin along the spine are also available. Skin surface spine computer-aided systems are intended for assessment of spinal deformity in the sagittal and frontal planes (e.g., segmental angles, perpendicular inclination) and the segmental motion of the spine; they are mainly used to determine the status and progress of spinal disorders, including kyphosis or lordosis of particular spinal areas.
