  abstract =     "In this paper, Genetic Programming (GP) is employed to
                 obtain an optimum transformation function for bi-level
                 image thresholding. The GP uses a user-prepared gold
                 sample to learn from. A magnificent feature of this
                 method is that it does not require neither a prior
                 knowledge about the modality of the image nor a large
                 training set to learn from. The performance of the
                 proposed approach has been examined on 147 X-ray lung
                 images. The transformed images are thresholded using
                 Otsu's method and the results are highly promising. It
                 performs successfully on 99percent of the tested
                 images. The proposed method can be used for other image
                 processing tasks, such as, image enhancement or
