Computer-aided recognition of emphysema on digital chest radiography

Several abnormalities of the shape of lung fields (depression and flattening of the diaphragmatic contours, increased retrosternal space) are indicative of emphysema and can be accurately imaged by digital chest radiography. In this project, we aimed at developing computational descriptors of the shape of the lung silhouette able to capture the alterations associated with emphysema
