Identification of both the luminal and the wall areas of the bronchial tree structure from volumetric X-ray computed tomography (CT) data sets is of critical importance in distinguishing important phenotypes within numerous major lung diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and asthma. However, accurate assessment of the inner and outer airway wall surfaces of a complete 3-D tree structure is difficult due to their complex nature, particularly around the branch areas… CONTINUE READING
