Abstract: This work presents the results of the characterization of lung nodules in chest Computerized Tomography for benign/malignant classification. A set of image features was used in the Computer-aided Diagnosis system to distinguish benign from malignant nodules and, therefore, diagnose lung cancer. A filter-based feature selection approach was used in order to define an optimal subset with higher accuracy. A large and heterogeneous set of 293 features was defined, including shape, intensity and texture features. We used different KNN and SVM classifiers to evaluate the features subsets. The estimated results were tested in a dataset annotated by radiologists. Promising results were obtained with an area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUC value) of 96:2 ± 0:5% using SVM.
