Paper Abstract

Chest radiographs represent a difficult class of images concerning automatic analysis with image processing methods. In our former work we presented a model based method to detect the rib borders and implemented a compensation algorithm of the rib structures. Recently we developed an improved method for rib border detection and algorithms to find the objects like chest border, vertebral spine, heart and intravascular catheter within a model driven approach. The determined borders of these objects allow further analysis and image enhancement for diagnose assistance.
