Studies of medical image segmentation have long been done as a mean to distinguish object region from one to another for further image analysis. The segmentation of lung region in chest X-ray (CXR) based on object edge detection is one of the popular method applied. Early edge detection algorithms like Sobel, Prewitt and Laplacian have been used to segment the lung however, none of them can successfully generate a truly satisfied segmentation output. The reason for this fail is because they are… CONTINUE READING
