摘要：To diagnose the patella dislocation, various angles and distances need to be measured on knee CT images, which was traditionally done by doctors manually. In this work, we propose a novel scheme for automatic measurement on knee CT images to assist doctors diagnosis of patella dislocation. Specifically, we first segment the femur and the patella regions on the CT images, then adopt optimal fitting to obtain the central planes of the femur and the patella bones and, based on which, make the measurement. As experimentally demonstrated, the measured results obtained with our system are highly consistent with those manually made by experienced doctors.
