OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of a new commercially available computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system with an automated method of detecting nodules due to lung cancers on chest radiograph. MATERIALS AND METHODS For patients with cancer, 45 cases with solitary lung nodules up to 25 mm in diameter (nodule size range, 8-25 mm in diameter; mean, 18 mm; median, 20 mm) were used. For healthy patients, 45 cases were selected on the basis of confirmation on chest CT… CONTINUE READING
