  • Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have shown great promise in improving computer aided detection (CADe. [...] Key Method We investigated using a genetic algorithm (GA) to conduct a neural architectural search (NAS) to generate a novel CNN architecture to find early stage lung cancer in chest x-rays (CXR). Using a dataset of over twelve thousand biopsy proven cases of lung cancer, the trained classification model achieved an accuracy of 97.15% with a PPV of 99.88% and a NPV of 94.81%, beating models such as…Expand Abstract
