Sorry for the bother, especially if the answer to this question is already readily available. Next year i have plans to begin a project which will involve the analysis of a large group of Chest X-rays.
This will involve looking at a series of X-rays and looking for the presence of areas of decreased opacity, specifically looking for areas of pulmonary interstitial emphysema. This research will require me to analyse a large number of X-rays and to count the number of these areas present in the images, as well as the diameter of the nodules.
I am wondering if the ImageJ software and various available plug-ins are capable of automatically analysing the series of X-rays, and to automatically analyse the number of black nodules present as well as their dimensions, or if i will be required to manually analyse these image myself.
And if so, how this can be accomplished- what plugins are required, and what tutorials or guides to perform these actions are available.
I hope this question makes sense and sorry if its already been answered.
Thank you very much.
