This paper presents a system for CAD of lung cancer screening by CT. The system consists of tow parts, automatic processing part and image based diagnosis part. The automatic processing part is to automatically detect the candidate regions of lung cancer based on the methods we proposed, and the image based diagnosis part is mainly used for doctor to make the mass screening. The result obtained by automatic processing part are provided to image based diagnosis pat as support information for increasing the performance of doctor screening.
