An accurate and fully automatic method for detecting and quantifying emphysema in CT-images is presented. The method is based on an image preprocessing step followed by a neural network classifier trained to separate true emphysema from artifacts. The proposed approach is shown to be superior to an established method when applied on real patient data.
