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