Abstract: Lung cancer is the most common of lethal types of cancer. One of the most important and difficult tasks a doctor has to carry out is the detection and diagnosis of cancerous lung nodules from x-ray image's result. Some of these lesions may not be detected because of camouflaged by the underlying anatomical structure, the low-quality of the images or the subjective and variable decision criteria used by doctors. Hence, a detection system using cellular neural network (CNN) is developed in order to help the doctors to recognize the doubtful lung cancer regions in x-ray films. In this study, a CNN algorithm for detecting the boundary and area of lung cancer in x-ray image has been proposed. Computer simulation result shows that our CNN algorithm is verified to detect some key lung cancer symptoms successfully and has been proved by radiologist.
