Paper Abstract

Computer assisted methods for the detection of pulmonary nodules have become more important as the resolution of CT scanners has increased and as more accurate and reproducible detections are needed. In this paper we describe the results of a CAD system for the detection of lung nodules and compare them against the interpretations of three independent radiologists.
