Paper Abstract

Aging and smoking history increases number of pulmonary emphysema. Alveoli restoration destroyed by pulmonary emphysema is difficult and early direction is important. Multi-slice CT technology has been improving 3-D image analysis with higher body axis resolution and shorter scan time. And low-dose high accuracy scanning becomes available. Multi-slice CT image helps physicians with accurate measuring but huge volume of the image data takes time and cost. This paper is intended for computer added emphysema region analysis and proves effectiveness of proposed algorithm.
