Abstract: We address the problem of segmenting ribs in a chest radiography image as an intermediate step for eliminating rib shadows for an effective Computer-Aided Diagnosis System (CAD). To this end, we introduce a complete framework that takes an unprocessed x-ray image and reports the entire rib regions. The system offers a novel strategy to fit a parabola curve to all rib seeds obtained through a log Gabor filtering approach and extend the center curve by a problem-specific region growing technique to delineate the entire rib, which does not necessarily follow a general parabolic model of rib cage. The visual examinations of predicted rib delineations in a common dataset have demonstrated that the system can achieve a reasonably good performance to be used in practice.
