Analyzing spinal deformities by spatial data extracted from computer generated moiré images

Drajkó Attila, J. Kocsis Ádám, Tamás Péter, Antal Ákos


Moiré measuring method is used widely throughout medical protocols, especially in the field of spinal diagnostics. In this article we will present an image processing method (written in National Instruments™ LabVIEW™ environment) to extract the height coordinates of a human back, by using the information provided by the moiré phenomenon formed on the surface. These data can be used to improve the accuracy of the two-dimensional deformation analysis (e.g. determination of Cobb Angle), or the relevance of three-dimensional aberrations (such as vertebral protrusions).
