We introduce a fully automatic localization and segmentation pipeline for three-dimensional (3D) intervertebral discs (IVDs), consisting of a regression-based prediction of vertebral bodies and IVD positions as well as a 3D geodesic active contour segmentation delineating the IVDs. The approach was evaluated on the data set of the challenge in conjunction with the 3rd MICCAI Workshop & Challenge on Computational Methods and Clinical Applications for Spine Imaging -MICCAI– CSI2015, that consists of 15 magnetic resonance images of the lumbar spine with given ground truth segmentations. Based on a localization accuracy of 3.9±1.6 mm, we achieve segmentation results in terms of the Dice similarity coefficient of 89.1 ±2.9% averaged over the whole data set.
