An Approach to Recognise Lung Diseases Using Segmentation and Classification


Lung cancer is one of the most common causes of death in people worldwide. One of the key procedures for early detection of cancer is segmentation or analysis and classification or assessment of lung images. Radiotherapists have to invest a lot of effort into the manual segmentation of medical images. To solve this issue, early-stage lung cancer is detected using Computed Tomography (CT) scan images. The proposed system for diagnosing lung cancer is divided into two main components: the first part is an analyser component built on the upper layer of the U-shaped Network Transformer (UNT), and the second component is an assessment component built on the upper layer of the self-supervised network, which is used to categorise the output segmentation component as benign or cancerous. The proposed method provides a powerful tool for the early detection and treatment of lung cancer by combining CT scan data with 2D input. Numerous experiments are conducted to improve the analysis and evaluation of the findings. Using the public dataset, both test and training experiments were conducted. New state-of-the-art performances were achieved with experimental results: an analyser accuracy of 96.9% and an assessment accuracy of 96.98%. The proposed approach provides a new powerful tool for leveraging 2D-input CT scan data for early detection and treatment of lung cancer using a variety of methods.
