Paper Abstract

Conversion of images at micro level of the normal lung and those with very early stage lung disease, and the quantitative analysis of morphology on the images can contribute to the thoracic image diagnosis of the next generation. The collection of every minute CT images is necessary in using high luminance synchrotron radiation CT for converting the images. The purpose of this study is to analyze the structure of secondary pulmonary lobules. We also show the structure of the secondary pulmonary lobule by means of extending our vision to a wider field through the image reconfiguration from the projection image of the synchrotron radiation CT.
