Lung Nodule Risk Prediction


Aim of this group is to design a software tool that will predict the risky lung nodules from CT and X-ray images to detect this disease at an early stage. Hence the survival rate of this disease can increase. This is a collaborative research among University of Calcutta, Peerless Hospital and University of Nebraska Lincoln, United States of America, involving three technologist and two doctors in this project.
