Deep Learning for the Classification of Lung Nodules

  title={Deep Learning for the Classification of Lung Nodules},
  author={He Yang and Hengyong Yu and Ge Wang},
Deep learning, as a promising new area of machine learning, has attracted a rapidly increasing attention in the field of medical imaging. Compared to the conventional machine learning methods, deep learning requires no hand-tuned feature extractor, and has shown a superior performance in many visual object recognition applications. In this study, we develop a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) and apply it to thoracic CT images for the classification of lung nodules. We present the CNN… CONTINUE READING
