Arpita Mittal and Sanjay Kumar Dubey

In the present article there is application of image processing techniques for identification of most commonly available disease i.e. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Till today there is no proven cure for the disease, hence close monitoring of the disease is important in the medical treatment of the disease. In this paper Fingers and Knee images of patient having RA has been analysed through Morphological Image processing techniques. This includes erosion, dilation, Perimeter determination and Skeletonization. The processed images find its application in the field of Medical Science and can be beneficial for doctors for identification of disease stages for monitoring point of view.

Keywords: Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Morphological Image processing, erosion, dilation, Perimeter determination and Skeletonization.
