Abstract: Pneumonia is a pandemic that needs to be diagnosed early to prevent miserable deaths. The diagnosis of the condition takes longer using traditional procedures. The diagnosis of a chest X-ray image has been improved since the development of medical imaging technologies. Different layer numbers are used to create advanced learning methods. In pediatric patients, X-ray pictures of the chest are carefully chosen. As part of the patient's overall health treatment, an X-ray image of the tissue is obtained. Convolution Neural Networks (CNN) also contains neurons with observable weights and biases. Each neuron takes a specific input, creates a dot product, and then moves out of line voluntarily. To acquire the biggest contour in the sliced images, contract limited adaptive histogram equalization is being utilized in this paper. Last but not least, images are included to CNN models. On both sides of the image, the median difference of the variable histogram analyzes on the chest X-ray image is taken, and then it is trimmed. By comparing the performance metrics for all in-depth learning methods, the proposal is based on an integrated method utilizing image processing and a separate VGG-16 and VGG-19 which are distributed along with the InceptionResNetV2 research model separately. Hence, three different Deep CNNs to automatically detect pneumonia in chest are used in this work.
