Detection of Abnormal Texture in Chest X-rays with Reduction of Ribs

Park, M., Jin, J.S. and Wilson, L.S.

    This paper presents a method to apply the general image retrieval algorithm on chest radiographs using quasi- Gabor filter. The lung field is extracted to limit the region to be processed using knowledge based lung field extraction method and the rib shadow is reduced to emphasis the lung texture.
