Portable chest radiography is a valuable tool for screening patients hospitalized in intensive care, providing visual cues for diagnosis and physiological measurements. However, its practicality comes at the cost of quality, which is mainly affected by misaligned body positioning, thus increasing x-ray misinterpretation rates. This paper presents a novel methodology for the detection of the lung field boundaries in portable chest radiographs of patients with bacterial pulmonary infections. Such… CONTINUE READING
