This paper deals with classifiers that have been used for bone fracture detection in the past few years. The authors have made attempts to survey papers from different modalities. This guided us to study different classifiers that have been applied to images obtained from X-Ray. The study presented in simple manner so that it will be easy to understand and will help reader to study classifiers.
