Abstract: Any damage to the spinal cord may fully or partially affect the sensation of a human. Damage is may be because of vertebral fractures. To identify the injuries present in the spinal cord, first we need to segment the spinal cord. In terms of image registration, the segmented spines provide important features that are helpful to the correct alignment of corresponding anatomical structures across individual subjects. Furthermore, it becomes easier to conduct disease-oriented analysis given the segmented topologies/shapes of the spines. This paper proposes a spinal cord segmentation and injury detection system based on the proposed Crow search- DCNN method that has the capability to detect the injury in the spinal cord in an effective manner.
