In this article, we develop an automatic detection method for non-isolated pulmonary nodules as part of a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system for lung cancers in chest X-ray computed tomography (CT) images. An essential core of the method is to separate non-isolated nodules from connecting structures such as the chest wall and blood vessels. The isolated nodules can be detected more easily by the CAD systems developed previously. To this end, we propose a preprocessing technique for nodule… CONTINUE READING
