Early detection of lung cancer is crucial to increase the chance of cure. As lung cancer often manifests itself in the presence of malignant pulmonary nodules, the assessment of such is of high clinical importance. Lung cancer screening is primarily performed using diagnostic imaging modalities such as CT, while invasive methods such as biopsy are used as a last resort to confirm diagnosis.
