To develop a computer-aided diagnostic scheme of the CT in the diagnosis of lung cancer based on artificial neural networks (ANN) to assist radiologists in distinguishing malignant from benign pulmonary nodules. 117 CT images of pulmonary nodules (58 benign and 59 malignant) were analyzed. 21 CT radiological features of each case were carefully selected and quantified by three experienced radiologists. The 21 features and 5 clinical parameters were used as ANN input data. The result of ANNt was… CONTINUE READING
