Abstract: Bone is a most important anatomical structure in human body and a challenge in the medical world is the concern in the bone density called as osteoporosis. This disease in the bone is detected by medical image techniques. The main objective of this paper is to measure the bone mineral density (BMD) from X-ray images and thereby, evaluate the value of T-score, with an emphasis on scaling of images of DXA and X-ray for the measurement of BMD and T-score. The anticipated method comprises the succeeding steps: Region of Interest(ROI) of the bone region from X-ray and DXA images, Calculation of BMD using scale factor, Evaluation of T-score value and finally, the risk condition of bone.
Keyword: BMD, DXA, osteoporosis, scaling factor T-score,X-ray images.
Scope of the Article: Standards for IoT Applications.
