Deep Learning with Lung Segmentation and Bone Shadow Exclusion Techniques for Chest X-Ray Analysis of Lung Cancer

20 Dec 2017Yu. GordienkoPeng GangJiang HuiWei ZengYu. KochuraO. AlieninO. RokovyiS. Stirenko

The recent progress of computing, machine learning, and especially deep learning, for image recognition brings a meaningful effect for automatic detection of various diseases from chest X-ray images (CXRs). Here efficiency of lung segmentation and bone shadow exclusion techniques is demonstrated for analysis of 2D CXRs by deep learning approach to help radiologists identify suspicious lesions and nodules in lung cancer patients...
