Automatic segmentation of lung parenchyma in the presence of diseases based on curvature of ribs.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Segmentation of lungs using high-resolution computer tomographic images in the setting of diffuse lung diseases is a major challenge in medical image analysis. Threshold-based techniques tend to leave out lung regions that have increased attenuation, such as in the presence of interstitial lung disease. In contrast, streak artifacts… (More)
