A Brief Study on Human Bone Anatomy and Bone Fractures

Authors: N.Umadevi, S.N.Geethalakshmi

The rapid and continuing progress in computerized medical image reconstruction and the associated developments in analysis methods and computer-aided diagnosis have propelled medical imaging as one of the most important sub-fields in scientific imaging. One important area is the fracture detection from x-ray images, where automated tools are used to detect fractures. In order to develop an automated fracture detection system, a clear understanding of human skeletal system, bone and fractures is required. This paper provides description on each of these topics.
