Computer-aided diagnosis in chest radiology.


Journal Article (Review)

Chest radiography is still a useful examination in various situations, although CT has become a modality of choice as a diagnostic examination in many cases. Current computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) schemes for chest radiographs include nodule detection, interstitial disease detection, temporal subtraction, differential diagnosis of interstitial disease, and distinction between benign and malignant pulmonary nodules. All of these schemes are demonstrated as providing potentially useful tools for radiologists when the output of these schemes is used as a "second opinion." There are some commercially available products for these schemes and more are expected to be available in the near future. The current status of CAD for CT is also discussed briefly in this article.
