Abstract

To see if nuclear medicine images could be interpreted by computer, lung perfusion images were stored, either on disc, or on magnetic tape as matrices. The matrices were processed, thereafter, by a number of different maneuvers, and an algorithm incorporating the most promising methods was applied to all of the stored images. The images were originally derived from three different scinticameras, with different field sizes, but as long as the orientation of the transmitted imaged was not rotated from what the algorithm was told to expect, the image could be processed. The objective of this project was to write a program to automatically evaluate perfusion lung scans.
