Abstract


Cancer has become very common in this evolving world. Technology advancements, increased radiations have made cancer a common syndrome. Various types of cancers like Skin Cancer, Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Blood Cancer, Colorectal cancer, Kidney Cancer and Lung Cancer exits. Among these various types of cancers, the mortality rate is high in lung cancer which is tough to diagnose and can be diagnosed only in advanced stages. Small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer are the two types in which non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type which makes up to 80 to 85 percent of all cases [1]. Digital Image Processing and Artificial Intelligence advancements has helped a lot in medical image analysis and Computer Aided Diagnosis(CAD). Numerous research is carried out in this field to improve the detection and prediction of the cancerous tissues. In current methods, traditional image processing techniques is applied for image processing, noise removal and feature extraction. There are few good approaches that applies Artificial Intelligence and produce better results. However, no research has achieved 100% accuracy in nodule detection, early detection of cancerous nodules nor faster processing methods. Application of Artificial Intelligence techniques like Machine Learning, Deep Learning is very minimal and limited. In this paper [Figure 1], we have applied Artificial intelligence techniques to process CT (Computed Tomography) Scan image for data collection and data model training. The DICOM image data is saved as numpy file with all medical information extracted from the files for training. With the trained data we apply deep learning for noise removal and feature extraction. We can process huge volume of medical images for data collection, image processing, detection and prediction of nodules. The patient is made well aware of the disease and enabled with their health tracking using various mobile applications made available in the online stores for iOS and Android mobile devices.
