This paper describes a semi-automatic segmentation method for application to cervical and lumbar X-ray images. The method consists of a three stage, coarse to fine segmentation process utilizing one stage of the Generalized Hough Transform and two stages of Active Appearance Models. Customizations to these algorithms are introduced, and segmentation results for 273 cervical X-ray images and 262 lumbar X-ray images are presented.
