Spine Curvature Estimation (SCE) Tool

The SCE tool is a Matlab tool for automatic spine curvature estimation from X-ray images of a mouse model. The tool offers a fully automatic solution for spine segmentation and curvature quantification from X-ray images of mice. The process goes through three stages, namely preparation of the region of interest, spine segmentation, and spine curvature quantification. The tool then produces six different automatic measurements for quantifying the spine curvature as in the figure below.
