Abstract
Lung Cancer is know as one fo the most difficult cancers to cure. The detection of lung cancer in its early stage can be helpful for medical treatment to danger. However, mass screening based on helical CT images brings a considerable number of images to diagnosis, the time-consuming fact makes it difficult to be used in the clinic. To increase the efficiency of the mass screening process, we developed a Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system, which can detect nodules at high speed. It takes 17 seconds per case (35 images) to detect nodules. In this paper, we describe the development of this CAD system and specifications.
