Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the world and its main manifestation is through pulmonary nodules. Pulmonary nodule classification is a challenging task that must be done by qualified specialists, but image interpretation errors and temporal aspects difficult those processes. In order to aid radiologists on the image interpretation process, it is important to integrate computer-based tools with the lung cancer diagnostic process.
