Abstract

This paper presents a method capable of detecting and segmenting pulmonary nodules in clinical computed tomography images, using UNet convolutional neural network powered by The Lung Image Database Consortium image collection - LIDC-IDRI, that in the training process was submitted to different training tests, where for each of them, their hyper-parameters were modified so that the results could be collected from different media, getting quite satisfactory results in the segmentation task, highlighting the areas of interest almost perfectly, resulting in 91.61% on the IoU (Intersection over Union) metric.
