Title
DEEP LEARNING USING CHEST COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY FOR THE DETECTION AND DIAGNOSIS OF LUNG CANCER
Summary
Develop learning algorithms using the latest artificial intelligence methods to aid in lung cancer detection and diagnosis based on textural features in contrast-enhanced computed tomography scans. We then plan to assess the algorithm’s accuracy and performance on a new dataset compiled from patients at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC).
Aims

- Further develop algorithms from the 2017 Kaggle competition
- We want to use these algorithms to create our own to detect lung nodules, then segment said lung nodules.
- After segmentation the software characterizes the lung nodule.
- After characterization, the software then tells the user the likelihood of the nodule being cancerous.
- We then want to test this software with MUSC CT scans.
