Lung Nodule Detection

Authors(2) :-Rasika N. Kachore, Kivita Singh

Various image processing and computer vision techniques can be used to determine cancer cells from medical images. Medical image classification plays an important role in medical research field. The patient lung images are classified into either benign (non-cancer) or malignant (cancer). There are many effective algorithms to analyze different salient detection methods. Here salient region is lung nodule, we have to detect nodule by using fast pixel-wise image saliency aggregation (F-PISA). This paper analyzes summarize some of the information about F-PISA framework for the purpose of early detection and diagnosis of lung cancer. This present work proposes a method to detect the cancerous nodule effectively from the CT scan images by reducing the detection error.
