Morphological Approach For Detection Of Talc Deposition In Lung Ct Images
Medical image enhancement and segmentation technologies have become popular since advanced medical
equipments were used in the medical field. In this paper Lung CT images of a drug addicted person whose lungs are filled with
talc of drugs is used. Contrast Enhancement in combination with Morphological segmentation are used as methods for
detection of Talc deposition. Later a comparison is done on the basis of subjective and objective parameters. Subjective
parameter is visual quality and objective parameters are Area, Perimeter, Min and Max intensity, Avg Voxel Intensity, Std
Dev of Intensity, Eccentricity, Coefficient of skewness, Coefficient of Kurtosis, Median intensity, Mode intensity
Keywords— Histogram Equalization, Segmentation, Canny operator, Enhancement.
