Title
Development of computer-aided diagnosis systems for the lung disease in the chest radiograph
Summary
The purpose of this project is to develop the algorithm for automatic classification and localization of lung diseases in chest radiograph and to commercialize its applications so that it can be widely used for screening tests.
The challenge in building a robust and accurate AI-based diagnosis system is how to capture the diversity of chest radiographs (e.g., imaging device, image quality, disease type and location, patient size and age distribution).
To tackle this problem, the dataset may be used for training, evaluating or validating the algorithm, workflow, prototype or software in the development and/or the developed products, systems or services.
Aims

1. Develop algorithms for automatic classification and localization of the lung disease in the chest radiograph
2. Evaluate the performance of algorithms/systems for the lung disease
3. Commercialize diagnosis systems for screening tests
