The pneumothorax can be caused by a blunt chest injury, damage from underlying lung disease or it may occur for no obvious reason at all. This is one of the complex problems for the experts manual detection, which can be solved automaHcally and simplify the clinical workflow. In several situations, lung collapse can turn out as serious threat to life.Proposed method presents new segmentaHon pipeline for the chest X-ray images with the multi step conditioned postprocessing.This approach leads to the significant improvement compare with any “baseline” by the reduction of the totally missed and false positive detections of the pneumothorax collapse regions.
