Seminar Title: Automated Lung Field Segmentation in CT images using Mean Shift C
lustering and Geometrical Features
Topic Description:
Lung field segmentation is a prerequisite for development of automated computer
aided diagnosis system from chest computed tomography (CT) scans. Intensity base
d algorithm such as
mean shift (MS) segmentation on CT images for delineation of lung field is repor
ted as the best technique in terms of accuracy and speed in the literature. Howe
ver, in presence of high dense abnormalities, accurate and automated delineation
of lung field becomes difficult. So an improved lung field segmentation using m
ean shift clustering followed by geometric property based techniques such as lun
g region of interest (ROI) created from symmetric centroid map of two normal sub
jects, false positives (FP) reduction module (using eccentricity, solidity, area
, centroid features) and false negatives (FN) reduction module (using overlap fe
ature between clusters from MS label map and convex hull of costal lung) is prop
osed. The performance of the proposed algorithm is validated on images obtained
from Lung Image Database Consortium (LIDC) - Image Database Resource Initiative
(IDRI) public database of 17 subjects containing nodular patterns and from local
database of 26 subjects containing interstitial lung disease (ILD) patterns. Th
e proposed algorithm has achieved mean Modified Hausdorff Distance (MHD) in mm o
f 1.47 ± 4.31, Dice Similarity Coe±cient (DSC) of 0.9854 ± 0.0288, sensitivity of 0.97
71 ± 0.0433, specificity of 0.9991 ± 0.0014 for 133 normal images from 32 subjects a
nd MHD in mm of 6.23 ± 9.00, DSC of 0.8954 ± 0.1498, sensitivity of 0.8468 ± 0.1908, s
pecificity of 0.9969 ±
0.0061 for 296 abnormal images from 43 subjects.
