Classification of X-Ray Images of Normal, Pneumonia, and Covid-19 Lungs Using the Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) Algorithm

Dini Rohmayani, Ayu Hendrati Rahayu


Lung disease has a very serious impact on the respiratory system and can be dangerous if not treated immediately. At this time, lung diseases that are often encountered by the public include pneumonia and 2019 coronavirus. Many people mistake the disorder that occurs to him because the symptoms of Covid-19 and pneumonia are very similar. Thus, it is very important to know the difference between the two diseases so that early treatment can be carried out. Based on the problems that have been described, the author will propose a study entitled "Classification of X-ray Images of Normal Lungs, Pneumonia, and Covid-19 Using the Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) Algorithm". The aim of this study is to assist in classifying normal, pneumonia, and Covid-19 lungs. The reason for choosing this algorithm is that this algorithm has advantages in grouping cluster centers which are more optimal than other methods.
