Diagnosis of X-Ray Using Gabor Wavelet Transform

Authors(2) :-Dr. S. S. Mungona, Miss. Nishigandha M. Sawarkar

The bone fracture is common problem in human beings due to accident or other causes like bone cancer etc. The fracture can occur in any bone of our body like wrist, heel, ankle, hip, rib, leg, chest etc. It is not possible to view fractures by naked eyes, so X-ray/CT images are used to detect it. But sometimes these images lack sufficient details needed to diagnose. Now a day’s image processing is playing an important role in bone fracture detection. Image processing is important in modern data storage and data transmission especially in progressive transmission of images, video coding (teleconferencing), digital libraries, image database, and remote sensing. This paper presents a study of image processing techniques for bone fracture detection. This paper will help user to study different methods for bone fracture detection using image processing and to design new techniques to improve accuracy of fracture detection. Wavelets have been widely used in signal and image processing. Wavelet transforms have been successfully applied to many topics including tomography reconstruction, image compression, noise reduction, image enhancement, texture analysis, segmentation, multiscale registration. This paper also presents technologies used to implement image processing based system for fracture detection with pros and cons.
