Auto-detection of vertebral body in a MRI image

Hi everyone!

I would like to detect automatically the vertebral body in a MRI image (DICOM). To know the centroid's coordinates would be enough.

You can download a sample image by clicking the following link:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-2374264/mri_sample.dcm.html

As information: the vertebral body is the dark ellipse in the middle of the image; under it you can see the spinal cord as a bright "blur".

Does anybody has a hint how to manipulate the image (filters, transformations...) so that the centroid could be found?

Thanks in advance!
Michael
