For identification and screening of several lung diseases, the chest X-ray is just one of the very most often obtainable radiological tests. Most modern-day hospitals' Photo Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) collect thousands of X-ray imaging scientific studies, followed by radiological stories that are collected and saved. In this paper, we employ the graph strategy to collect and store the dataset of those X-ray pictures. The RAWGraph can be an open source web tool for its production of inactive information visualizations, which can be changed to become further altered. Initially designed for picture artists to extend a succession of responsibilities, maybe not available in combination with different applications, it has developed into a stage that offers easy tactics to map information measurements on visual factors. That poses a more chart-based way of information visualization; every visual version will be an unaffiliated module displaying distinct visual factors that may be utilized to map information measurements. Thus, end-users may develop complex information visualizations. We assess the correlation and relationship among different aspects of this data set. We now provide a chest X-ray database, particularly "ChestX-ray8", that contains 108,948 frontal perspective X-rays of 32,717 specific and distinct patients, with all containing a written text created from eight disorder image tags (where just about every image could have multi-labels), in the related reports utilizing standard language processing. In this paper, we use diverse methods for visualization, which can be Circle Packing, Bee Swarm Plot, Convex Hull, Boxplot, and Circular Dendrogram. We image the dataset more accurately and examine the terms of these various arrangements of features precisely.
