Purpose: Lung Nodule or Pulmonary Nodule is a space in white taking after we identify the cotton or mists in clinical pictures examined on thorax. Early identification of nodules of lung in thoracic Computed Tomography (CT) examines that it is critical for the effective conclusion and treatment of lung disease. Prior, the grouping is finished through the Entropy Weighted Residual Convolution Neural Network (EWRCNN) for recognition of lung nodule. This identification plan can maintain a strategic distance from competitor extraction and be less reliant on scale. In any case, division of suspected aspiratory nodules requires further innovative work which can expand the recognition affectability of detection systems.

Contribution: To accomplish this objective, Enhanced Inception-Residual Convolutional Neural Network (EIRCNN) is proposed which has three stages, for example, pre-preparing, segmentation and final classification of pulmonary nodule. At first, to improve the Ct images local information, Normalized Gamma-Corrected Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (NGCCLAHE)- Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is recommended that consolidates the NGCCLAHE with DWT. Second, intelligent W-Net (iW-Net) is a profound learning model that takes into consideration both programmed and intuitive division of lung nodules in processed tomography pictures following that the feature extraction is directed utilizing the Fuzzy Continuous Wavelet Transform (FCWT) and Gray Level Feature Extraction (GLCM). And then, feature selection deducts the filter-based approach to deal with production of the ideal list of capabilities and to limit the immateriality of the features that gives the output for the lung nodules classification in CT and X-ray images. The arrangement is finished utilizing EIRCNN.

Results: The strategy EIRCNN is profoundly powerful for decreasing the false positive rates, on 888 scans of the freely accessible LIDC-IDRI dataset, when contrasted with the existing techniques, for example, EWRCNN, Faster RCNN and RCNN.
