In this paper we present a computer aided detection (CAD) system for colonic polyp detection in computed tomography (CT) images. Here, the segmentation of the colon region was performed in three steps which are thresholding, labeling and analyzing the shape morphologies using decision rules. After extracting the colon region, searching with 3D semi-spherical polyp template was performed to detect the polyps. Because the polyps can appear in all possible orientations on the colon wall, 3D… CONTINUE READING
