There are tons of papers on lung cancer image processing/analysis. You can find a list of some/most of them (at least in the Image Processing Journals) here:
20.7.2 Lungs, and Lung Cancer Image Analysis Thorax, Thoracic Analysis Pulmonary Nodules, Lung Nodules
There may also be some others in the medical journals. We don't have code for any of those papers so you'll have to ask the authors or code them up yourself. And I'm sure every author is presenting what they think is the best method, but I have no way of knowing which is really best, or even appropriate, for your kind of images. Good luck.
