Genetic Deep Learning for Lung Cancer Screening

  title={Genetic Deep Learning for Lung Cancer Screening},
  author={Hun-Tae Park and Connor Monahan},
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
Screening of Radiological Images Suspected of Containing Lung Nodules
This paper presents a study about screening large radiological image streams produced in hospitals for earlier detection of lung nodules. Being one of the most difficult classification tasks in theExpand

Lung Pattern Classification for Interstitial Lung Diseases Using a Deep Convolutional Neural Network
A comparative analysis proved the effectiveness of the proposed CNN against previous methods in a challenging dataset, and demonstrated the potential of CNNs in analyzing lung patterns. Expand
Breast cancer histopathological image classification using Convolutional Neural Networks
This method aims to allow using the high-resolution histopathological images from BreaKHis as input to existing CNN, avoiding adaptations of the model that can lead to a more complex and computationally costly architecture. Expand
Dermatologist-level classification of skin cancer with deep neural networks
This work demonstrates an artificial intelligence capable of classifying skin cancer with a level of competence comparable to dermatologists, trained end-to-end from images directly, using only pixels and disease labels as inputs. Expand
A Dataset for Breast Cancer Histopathological Image Classification
A dataset of 7909 breast cancer histopathology images acquired on 82 patients, which is now publicly available from, aimed at automated classification of these images in two classes, which would be a valuable computer-aided diagnosis tool for the clinician. Expand
PET/CT imaging in different types of lung cancer: an overview.
This review focuses on the main clinical applications and accuracy of PET/CT for the detection of non-small cells lung cancer, broncho-alveolar carcinoma (BAC), small cells Lung cancer (SCLC), lung neuroendocrine tumours (NET) and solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN). Expand
Computer-aided diagnosis: A survey with bibliometric analysis
This study determined that CAD research has been classified and categorized according to disease type and imaging modality, and in contrast to the typical hypothetical approach, the data-driven approach has shown promise. Expand
Screening mammography with computer-aided detection: prospective study of 12,860 patients in a community breast center.
The use of CAD in the interpretation of screening mammograms can increase the detection of early-stage malignancies without undue effect on the recall rate or positive predictive value for biopsy. Expand
Forest Species Recognition Using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
This paper investigates the usage of deep learning techniques, in particular Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), for texture classification in two forest species datasets - one with macroscopic images and another with microscopic images and presents a method able to cope with the high-resolution texture images to achieve high accuracy and avoid the burden of training and defining an architecture with a large number of free parameters.

Very deep convolutional neural network based image classification using small training sample size
The results show that the very deep CNN can be used to fit small datasets with simple and proper modifications and don't need to re-design specific small networks. Expand
ImageNet classification with deep convolutional neural networks
A large, deep convolutional neural network was trained to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes and employed a recently developed regularization method called "dropout" that proved to be very effective. Expand
