Image Analysis for Cystic Fibrosis: Computer-Assisted Airway Wall and Vessel Measurements from Low-Dose, Limited Scan Lung CT Images

Journal of Digital Imaging, 05/14/2012

Results of threshold–based, corrected with regression analysis, and model–based approaches correlated well with both electronic caliper measurements made by experienced observers and spirometric measurements of lung function. While the model–based approach results correlated slightly better with the human measurements than those of the threshold method, a hybrid method, combining these two methods, resulted in the best results.
