研究成果: Chapter


Lung cancer is the most common cancer among men and the third most common among women in the world. Many diagnostic techniques have been introduced to diagnose lung cancer. Positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) examination is an image diagnostic method that performs automatic detection and distinction of lung lesions. In addition, pathological examination by biopsy is performed for lesions that are suspected of being malignant, and appropriate treatment methods are applied according to the diagnosis results. Currently, lung cancer diagnosis is performed through coordination between respiratory, radiation, and pathological diagnosis experts, but there are some tasks, such as image diagnosis, that require a large amount of time and effort to complete. Therefore, we developed a decision support system using PET/CT and microscopic images at the time of image diagnosis, which leads to appropriate treatment. In this chapter, we introduce the proposed system using deep learning and radiomic techniques.
