We present algorithms for the automatic delineation of lung fields in chest radiographs. We first develop a rule-based scheme that detects lung contours using a general framework for the detection of oriented edges and ridges. This algorithm is compared to several pixel classifiers using different combinations of features. We propose a hybrid system that combines both approaches. The performance of each system is compared with interobserver variability and results available from the literature… CONTINUE READING
