Auto-detection of non-isolated pulmonary nodules connected to the chest walls in X-ray CT images


In this paper, we develop an auto-detection method of non-isolated pulmonary nodules for computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) of lung cancers using X-ray CT images. An essential core of the method is to transform the non-isolated nodules connected to the walls of the chest into isolated ones that can be detected more easily by CAD systems developed previously.
