Automatic Labeling of Vertebral Levels Using a Robust Template-Based Approach

Figure 10

Automatic vertebral labeling in a patient with metallic implant. Large hypointensity due to dropout artifact is visible at levels C4–C6 anteriorly and is caused by the metallic screws (a). Thanks to the template-based approach, labeling was nevertheless successful (b).
