Title:
Study on bronchus region extraction from 3D chest CT images using local intensity structure analysis and CT value distribution features 
Abstract:
This paper presents a method for extracting bronchus regions from 3D chest CT images. Several groups have proposed methods for extracting bronchus regions by using region growing. However, these methods do not work well in the case of tumors dividing the bronchial tree into several parts. This study proposes a method that can extract the bronchus in such cases using local intensity structure analysis, CT value distribution and shape features. First, the proposed method extracts cylindrical struc...    »
