Abstract
The benign and malignant differential diagnosis of small pulmonary nodules (diameter < 20 mm) found in lung CT images is big challenges for most of radiologists. Here, we presented our preliminary study of benign and malignant differentiation of small pulmonary nodules in lung CT images by using deep learning Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). The 921 cases with small benign and malignant pulmonary nodules confirmed by pathology were collected from three data sources and were used to train and validate the CNN. The preliminary results of AUCs of ROC curves for differentiating benign and malignant pulmonary small nodules with various types and sizes of solid, semi-solid and ground glass nodules were presented and discussed.
