  • Recent years have seen increased use of Computed Tomography (CT) based Unaccompanied Baggage and Package Screening (UBPS) systems for luggage examination to ensure air travel security. In this paper we present a research work on developing a system for automatic detection of potential threat items in cluttered 3D CT imagery originating from UBPS systems by combining 3D medical image segmentation techniques with 3D shape classification and retrieval methods.
