Morpho-functional Analysis of the Pelvis

Total hip arthroplasty is the most frequently performed artificial joint replacement in the human body. During the planning phase, it is necessary to identify anatomical parameters and landmarks to take the individual anatomy and biomechanics of the patient into account. A manual identification, requires medical knowledge, is time-consuming and error-prone. Therefore, a robust and automatic detection process is preferable. A framework was developed to determine patient-specific parameters and landmarks of the pelvic bones. This is the basis for investigations of the relationship between pelvic morphology and functional parameters, such as pelvic tilt.
