Pneumonia and Tuberculosis (TB) are two serious and life-threatening diseases that are caused by a bacterial or viral infection of the lungs and have the potential to result in severe consequences within a short period of time. Therefore, early diagnosis is a significant factor in terms of a successful treatment process. Chest X-Rays which are used to diagnose Pneumonia and/or Tuberculosis need expert radiologists for evaluation. Thus, there is a need for an intelligent and automatic system that has the capability of diagnosing chest X-rays, and to simplify the disease detection process for experts and novices. This study aims to develop a model that will help with the classification of chest X-ray medical images into normal vs Pneumonia or Tuberculosis. Medical organizations take a minimum of one day to classify the diagnosis, while our model could perform the same classification within a few seconds. Also, it will display a prediction probability about the predicted class. The model had an accuracy, precision and recall score over 90% which indicates that the model was able to identify patterns. Users can upload their respective chest X-ray image and the model will classify the uploaded image into normal vs abnormal.
