Lung registration with explicit interlobular fissure alignment

Part of the Aktuelle Forschung Medizintechnik book series (MEDTEC)


The human lungs consist of five separate lobes, three in the right lung and two in the left. The lobes have individual bronchial and vascular systems and are functioning relatively independent from each other. Moreover, each lobe has its own pleural covering. As illustrated in Figure 5.1, the pleurae of adhering lobes are visible as hairlines in radiographic images and are denoted as the interlobular fissures [Hayashi et al. 2001].
