Computed Tomography (CT) based baggage security screening systems are of increasing use in transportation security. The ability to automatically identify potential threat item is a key aspect of current research in this area. Here we present a comparison of varying classification approaches for the automated detection of threat objects in cluttered 3D CT imagery from such security screening systems. By combining 3D medical image segmentation techniques with 3D shape classification and retrieval… Expand
