In a nutshell, an intelligent image processing algorithm and procedure based on machine learning for lumbar ultrasound image processing has been proposed and developed in the thesis. The algorithms are able to locate the precise needle entry site as the operator moving the ultrasound probe following a given procedure, thus facilitating the interpretation of ultrasound images and realizing automatic localization of needle entry site.
