Project ID
NLST-708
Initial CDAS Request Approval
Sep 12, 2020
Title
Smart Bronchoscopy
Summary
We are developing a commercial smart bronchoscopy platform so that the user can get real-time navigation guidance when they perform bronchoscopy based on a patient specific CT scan prior to the procedure. The chest CT scans from the NLST dataset will be used to develop lung airway segmentation and navigation algorithms.
Aims

1. Manually label anatomical structures (eg airways) from CT dataset
2. Use labeled data to train machine learning models to detect these structures
3. Use labeled data to evaluate the machine learning models
4. Use labeled airway for simulation to generate virtual bronchoscopy images to test vision based navigation
