Narrative

BoneFinder™ is a fully automatic software tool to outline and segment skeletal structures from 2D radiographs by accurately placing a set of points along the bone contour or at key landmark positions. It was originally designed for the segmentation of the hip joint but is now also used for other skeletal structures such as the joints of the hand or the knee joint. BoneFinder™ is being used by researchers world-wide, and some of the technology has been commercially licensed for application in clinical practice.
