Current Status and Future Outlook of Deep Learning Techniques For Nodule Detection

Shigao Huang*, Jie Yang, Kun Lan, Sunny Yaoyang Wu, Simon Fong and Qi Zhao


This chapter reports that Artificial Intelligence (AI) in clinical oncology includes deep learning for detecting the lung nodules and other algorithms for analyzing the nodules to acquire an early diagnosis of nodules and tumors. Therefore, the early diagnosis is of great significance in the treatment of lung cancer or precancerous disease. Also, the early detection of nodules can improve the treatment effects and reduce the chance of misdiagnosis.
