Abstract—The avoidance of mortality in lung cancer is highly dependent on finding defects in the lungs early, in order to initiate effective treatments in time. Most often, lung disorders are diagnosed and treated using chest radiographs and CT scans. Methods based on machine learning can complement human observations and increase precisions of accuracy by mapping an CT image against a trained artificial neural network. The efficiency and accuracy of training such a network, however, depends on the availability of the performance of an underlying computer system, and the quality and size of images. The use of neural network structures with high intrinsic performance is therefore significant. This contribution focuses on comparisons between different Convolutional Neural Networks and formats on datasets to contribute to a good basis for decision-making in the context of possible lung cancer.
