Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The Computed Tomography (CT) imaging-based Lung cancer detection is crucial for early diagnosis. This survey paper presents an overview of the techniques and advancements in CT-based lung cancer detection. It covers the fundamentals of CT imaging, including principles, types, and protocols.

OBJECTIVES: The paper explores image processing techniques for pre-processing, such as noise reduction, enhancement, and segmentation.

METHODS: Additionally, it discusses feature extraction methods, including shape, texture, and intensity-based features, as well as Deep Learning (DL) and Machine Learning (ML) methods for automated classification.

RESULTS: Computerised systems and their integration is examined with CT imaging along with performance evaluation metrics. The survey concludes by addressing challenges, limitations, and future directions. The imaging modalities and artificial intelligence techniques are used to improve lung cancer detection.

CONCLUSION: This comprehensive survey aims to provide a concise understanding of CT-based lung cancer detection for researchers and healthcare professionals.
