Paper Abstract

This paper describes one part of a system for automatically analysing chest x-rays. Previous publications have described the hardware, rib border detection and preliminary results for analysis of the lung fields. This paper is concerned with texture analysis and classification of the lung fields of chest x-rays. A description of the algorithms and some preliminary results are presented.
