In this paper, a knowledge-based, fully automatic method for identifying lung regions in digital chest radiographs is described. The method uses an object-oriented knowledge model to appropriately integrate the anatomical knowledge and image processing routines in lung detection. A series of chest radiographs are employed to test the proposed method; the experimental results are encouraging.
