Computer-Aided Detection Systems, Lung Nodule
Definition : Computer aided detection systems designed to detect and classify areas in thoracic radiographies with abnormalities (e.g., nodules) that may be indicative of lung cancer. These systems typically consist of a film digitizer, a computer capable of using appropriate algorithms for nodule detection and evaluation, and a display/and or printer that provides an image, showing regions of interest (ROI) in the chest radiography, including lung and mediastinum.
