An important feature of image analysis is texture, seen in all images, from aerial and satellite images to microscopic images in biomedical research. A chest X-ray is the most common and effective method for diagnosing severe lung diseases such as cancer, pneumonia, and tuberculosis. The lungs are the largest X-ray object. The correct separation of the shapes and sizes of the contours of the lungs is an important reason for diagnosis, because of which an intelligent information environment can be created. Despite the use of X-rays, to identify the diagnosis, there is a chance that the disease will not be detected. In this sense, there is a risk of development, which may be fatal. The article deals with the problems of pneumonia clustering using the autocorrelation function to obtain the most accurate result. This provides a reliable tool for diagnosing lung radiographs. Image pre-processing and data shaping play an important role in revealing a well-functioning basis of the nervous system. Therefore, images from two classes were selected for the task: healthy and with pneumonia. This paper demonstrates the applicability of the autocorrelation function for highlighting interest in lung radiographs based on the fineness of textural features and k-means extraction.
