Abstract
This paper presents that (1) to apply image processing technique into lung tissue information recognition, the key and hardest task is to auto-detecting lung tissue details on the X-ray images; and (2) the newly developed ridge detection algorithm is very powerful for detecting lung tissue, it has been tested not only for regular lung tissue images and also for irregular lung tissue images. The algorithm has been compared to some traditional image segmentation algorithms. All the test results show that it works satisfactory for lung tissue images.
