  abstract =     "This paper describes a novel nodule detection method
                 that enhances false positive reduction. Lung region is
                 extracted from CT image sequence using adaptive
                 thresholding and 18-connectedness voxel labelling. In
                 the extracted lung region, nodule candidates are
                 detected using adaptive multiple thresholding and rule
                 based classifier. After that, we extract the 3D and 2D
                 features from nodule candidates. The nodule candidates
                 are then classified using genetic programming (GP)
                 based classifier. In this work, a new fitness function
                 is proposed to generate optimal adaptive classifier. We
                 tested the proposed algorithm by using Lung Imaging
                 Database Consortium (LIDC) database of National Cancer
                 Institute (NCI). The classifier was trained and
                 evaluated using two independent dataset and whole
                 dataset. The proposed method reduced the false
                 positives in nodule candidates and achieved 92percent
                 detection rate with 6.5 false positives per scan.",
