Abstract
Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer worldwide and late detection is one of the major factors for the low survival rate of patients. Low dose computed tomography has been suggested as a potential early screening tool but manual screening is costly, time-consuming and prone to interobserver variability. This has fueled the development of automatic methods for the detection, segmentation and characterisation of pulmonary nodules but its application to the clinical routine is challenging. In this study, a platform for the development, deployment and testing of pulmonary nodule computer-aided strategies is presented: LNDetector. LNDetector integrates image exploration and nodule annotation tools as well as advanced nodule detection, segmentation and classification methods and gaze characterisation. Different processing modules can easily be implemented or replaced to test their efficiency in clinical environments and the use of gaze analysis allows for the development of collaborative strategies. The potential use of this platform is shown through a combination of visual search, gaze characterisation and automatic nodule detection tools for an efficient and collaborative computer-aided strategy for pulmonary nodule screening. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
