The objective of the work is to propose and identify lung nodule system using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) which is as of now a hot research territory in medical field and it is trusted that it will get broad application to biomedical frameworks in the following couple of years. Neural systems are perfect in perceiving sicknesses utilizing checks since there is no undeniable reason to give a particular calculation on the most proficient method to distinguish the malady.This paper depicts a calculation to isolate the lung tissue from a Chest CT to lessen the measure of information that should be broke down. We will probably have a completely programmed calculation for sectioning the lung tissue, and to isolate the two lung sides too. The picture is threshold to isolate low-thickness tissue (lungs) from fat. Cleaning is performed to expel air, clamor and aviation routes. At last, an arrangement of morphological tasks is utilized to smooth the unpredictable limit. The database utilized for assessment is taken from a radiology-instructing document. The present assessment demonstrates that the connected division calculation takes a shot at an expansive number of various cases. The textural highlights were removed from the portioned lungs and it was given as. The neural system is utilized to distinguish the different lung maladies.
