Diagnosis of Pulmonary Nodules using MultiSize Multi-Branch 3D-CNN Architecture

Nageshbabu Dasari, B V Ramana Reddy


Early prediction of lung cancer is very crucial now-a-days. 3D-CNN are widely used to extract dominant features from the given medical images. So, in this paper we designed a novel 3D-CNN architecture based on the size of the pulmonary nodule. In this architecture three branches S, M, and L are divided considering the diameter of the nodule as 9 mm, 15 mm, and above. All the features obtained from the three branches are concatenated to get the result. The designed model is validated with the publicly available LUNA-16 database is used. The model gives promising results with 92.6% CPM values
