Paper Abstract

Recently, the multi-slice CT for a lung cancer screening has 10 times as high resolution as the conventional helical CT. Small nodules can be found in this CT image. The diagnostic ability of expert physicians will improve by using this CT images. We get the CT image of 2mm thickness and 10 mm thickness from each subject. In this paper, we evaluated about the reading test for the lung cancer by expert physicians, using two kinds of images.
