Abstract: The research work comprises four segments: extracting lumen boundary, detecting lumen related abnormalities, forming a suitable colour segmentation framework, and classifying abnormalities using colour characteristics, applied to oesophageal images. Considering that an accurate determination of lumen boundary is important in the navigation of the endoscope in oesophagoscopy, a new method is proposed for automatic detection and extraction of lumen boundary of oesophagus. The proposed technique involves pre-processing, histogram analysis, region growing, post-processing,
