This paper introduces a hierarchical method of recognizing bone tissue from regions extracted from Pelvic CT Images. The method allows distinguishing among segmented objects with similar grey level values, such as bone tissue and regions of active hemorrhage. The method addresses the challenge of correctly segmenting and classifying bone as well as assessing presence of active hemorrhage.
