Method and System for Detection of Bone Fractures (LEOW WK 04)
This technology falls in the following categories of Singapore's IDA Infocomm Technology Roadmap 2012:
This invention is a computerised system for automated screening and detection of bone fractures in digital X-ray images. Doctors in hospitals manually inspect a large number of X-ray images for fractures everyday. This process is tedious and time-consuming. A tired radiologist could miss a fracture image among many healthy ones. This invention screens X-ray images for suspicious cases to alert doctors.
