Abstract: This paper deals with the use of ultrasound images in order to develop a Computer Assisted Orthopaedics Surgery system. Ultrasounds are easy to use in the Operating Room (OR), less expensive than other image modalities, and faster. We present an automatic method to extract anatomical landmarks from ultrasound images of femoral anterior condyles. The algorithm is based on an active contour model that uses an attraction field derived from an Euclidian-distance map. This segmentation process is a part of a global procedure that includes an interactive determination of the best image that could be chosen in order to obtain robust bone segmentation. This global procedure has been successfully tested on 11 volunteers.
