I'm currently working on the project about processing lumbosacral spine in Xray images.
My goal is do detect the vertebras from image
From the picture 1 i managed to get edges like in the picture 2.
My question is how to remove the edges which are not the vertebra.
I tried to identify each vertebra using Harris corners, but unfortunately its not detecting correct corners.
Is it possible to identify edge by its length?
Thanks you in advance for any help.
