Paper Abstract

One drawback of Computer Aided Detection (CADe) systems is the large amount of data needed to train them, which may be expensive in the medical field. We propose using a generative adversarial network (GAN) as a potential data augmentation strategy to generate more training data to improve CADe. In our preliminary results, using the NIH/NCI Lung Image Database Consortium, we obtained a higher sensitivity when training a CADe system on our augmented lung nodule 3D data than training it without. We show that GANs are a viable method of data augmentation for lung nodule detection and are a promising area of potential research in the CADe domain.
