Abstract Double contrast (DC) X-ray images are useful and cost-effective for the diagnosis of stomach tumors. However, it is difficult to automatically extract tumors from these images. This is due to the variations in the tumors appearing in the images as a result of the changes in stomach shapes and the distribution of barium meal in the stomach. In this paper, we propose an automated method for detecting tumors in DC X-ray images. Our method utilizes the distributions of contrast gradients in the images. The performance of our method is demonstrated by using actual DC X-ray images.
