Inactive Projects: Digital Atlas of the Spine

Digital atlas of the spine application

At the National Library of Medicine, we are helping to develop a digital atlas to serve as a reference tool for the interpretation of cervical and lumbar spine x-rays. The atlas contains representative images for several grades of severity for a number of spinal conditions on which expert rheumatologist readers have reached exact agreement in grading. Its functionality includes the ability to display single or multiple simultaneous images, the ability to add one’s own images, and the ability to perform image processing functions on the images.
