Since the airway segmentation is one of the most time-consuming tasks in AVIEW LungFA,
we have concentrated our research resource on developing a robust segmentation method.
At last, we’ve successfully build a new airway segmentation method based on CNN deep learning.
According to our internal experiments, the deep-learning method can produce quite good (often better)
segmentation, compared with the results manually segmented by human experts.
With the latest NVIDIA graphic cards, the new method takes only 3-5 minutes without human interaction.
The AVIEW LungFA with deep-learning airway segmentation will be released on the end of July, 2017.
