Abstract
The article presents two approaches of determining the ROI area in CT lung screening. First approach is based on a classic method of framing the image in order to determine the ROI by using a MaZda tool. Second approach is based on segmentation of CT images of the lungs and reducing the redundant information from the image. Of the two approaches of an Active Contour, it was decided to choose the Chan-Vese method. In order to determine the effectiveness of the approach, it was performed an analysis of received ROI texture and extraction of textural features. In order to determine the effectiveness of the method, it was performed an analysis of the received ROI textures and extraction of the texture features, by using a Mazda tool. The results were compared and presented in the form of the radar graphs. The second approach proved to be effective and appropriate and consequently it is used for further analysis of CT images, in the computer-aided diagnosis of sarcoidosis.
