Abstract

COPD is a spreading respiratory disease claiming more and more deaths. The aim of this study was to develop a method, which enables the computerized recognition of COPD in the course of pulmonary screening. At pulmonary screening only a PA radiograph is recorded, but some additional data can be measured automatically. Parameters indicating COPD have been derived from the chest radiograph using complex image processing algorithms. Neural network based classifiers were applied to select the patients with the suspicion of COPD. Results show that although diagnosis is not possible, the majority of COPD cases can be sorted out.
