Abstract

Lung cancer is the most dangerous cases which mostly attacks the man with the biggest causes of smoking. This cancer threatens the second largest death after heart attack, lung cancer cases increase significantly every year in various countries. Several methods have been established to detect lung cancer, including Computed Tomography of the thorax, sputum examination and cytology examination. The most decisive examination is through cytologic examination of the pleural fluid. However, the current state of biopsy performed by doctors does not always get a lot of specimens, making it difficult to determine the presence of cancer cells in the lungs. Cytological examination through the pleural fluid has difficulty in detecting cell images. The image of pleural fluid that has a high density between cells will produce an image with low detail, while an image with a low density will produce an image with high detail. Image segmentation is an important part in determining the cellular anatomy of pleural fluid to characterize images with cancer or normal categories. We propose the methodology of research by using group images to separate objects from other objects by highlighting important parts using image segmentation on pleural fluid of patients suspected of having lung cancer. Thresholding method used to see the comparison is Adaptive Thresholding, binary thresholding and Otsu Thresholding. The classification results of the three methods show a high accuracy of 99% on binary thresholding, then 97% accuracy on otsu thresholding and the lowest accuracy of 96% on adaptive thresholding, the three methods are considered to increase in proportion to the addition of the epoch parameter.
