Abstract

The present disclosure relates generally to landmark identification and more particularly relates to automatic landmark method of MRI base on face recognition. The proposed method provides automatic table positioning which allows the patient to be placed in the center of the magnetic field during scanning. This auto landmark method utilizes face recognition technique and binocular cameras to compute the table position, and then send the table to the proper position. Thus, this automatic method allows the doctors to be free of landmark and operate the MRI devices.
