Background and objective: In orthopaedics, hip joint and circular structure of the femoral head can be distorted by a wide variety of hip joint disorders. Hence, automatic detection and segmentation of the femoral head is an important issue in the studies of computerized hip joint segmentation, quantification and assessment. In the proposed study, we need to detect the center coordinates and radius of spheric and aspheric femoral heads automatically in bilateral hip magnetic resonance (MR) images using a new scheme.
