Abstract

This paper focuses on early stage lung cancer detection. Lung cancer is prominent cancer as it states large number of deaths of more than a million every year. It creates need of detecting the lung nodule at early stage in Computer Tomography medical images. So to detect the occurrence of cancer nodule at early stage, the requirement of methods and techniques is increasing. There are different methods and techniques existing but none of them provide a better accuracy of detection. One of the techniques is content based image retrieval Computer Aided Diagnosis System (CAD) for early detection of lung nodules from the Chest Computer Tomography (CT) images. This optimization algorithm allows physicians to identify the nodules present in the CT lung images in the early stage hence the lung cancer. The MATLAB image processing toolbox based implementation is done on the CT lung images and the classifications of these images are carried out. The performance measures like the classification rate and the false positive rates are analyzed.
