Abstract
Anatomical axes are widely used in orthopaedics, such as for the positioning of knee prostheses. Automated extraction of these axes from the medical images may assist in diagnosis and planning and evaluation of surgery. In this study, the alignment of 10 femurs was obtained using automatic feature extraction methods. Good agreement with reference values found in literature was observed for most measurements. To further evaluate our results, a reference set of manual measurements is being obtained from these femurs.
