This paper describes a novel variational approach for segmentation of small-size lung nodules which may be detected in low dose CT (LDCT) scans. These nodules do not possess distinct shape or appearance characteristics; hence, their segmentation is enormously difficult, especially at small size (≤ 1 cm). Variational methods hold promise in these… (More)
