Image Processing for Synthesizing Lung Nodules: A Experimental Study

N.S. Raghava and G. Senthil Kumar

The aim of this experiment is to study how effectively image processing utilises in CT scan. So a software application is developed using MATLAB software to experiment computer tomography (CT) image, using this application we identify the real nodule and create a 3d mesh Gaussian structure. A Certain parameters of this 3D mesh are taken to create a synthetic lung nodule. This synthetic nodule is inserted into the CT image. The real and synthetic nodules are evaluated from its appearance and shape in the CT image and 3D mesh plot. Based on this, more number of synthetic nodules can be created using various parameters; the characteristics of nodules are stored in to single database, which might be useful to the radiologist for further references of analysing the Lung nodules.

Its an innovative part of creating synthetic lung nodules using MATLAB, that is used for technical computing. But its making me to think why specifically LUNG NODULES are chosen for image processing and not any other nodules...!?
