  • This paper describes a prototype of an automatic system for the detection and evaluation of airways of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients from Computed Tomography (CT) Scans. The aim of the study is to present a prototype of an automatic system which could serve as a decision support for radiologists. The area percentages of airway in lung regions have been calculated in CT slices to represent Bronchiectasis stages of CF patients. The proposed automatic system has been tested on a dataset comprising of four CF patients belonging to different stages of Bronchiectasis.
