Abstract: Image classification is one of the major issues of image pre-processing approach. To resolve this issue a large number of classification approaches has been developed. In this work, a novel SVM-FA (support vector machine optimized with firefly approach) classifier is developed for detecting the lung cancer on the basis of the CT images. Lung cancer is considered one of the most critical and vital. Thus the early analysis of such kind of disease is required. For this purpose, the study implements the image pre-processing (filtration and segmentation) techniques to the input CT scan images. Then the SVM classifier, optimized with firefly approach is applied to the pre-processed data. The target of the work is to enhance the accuracy in the final prediction or output. For evaluating the proficiency level of the proposed SVM-FA approach, a comparison analysis is also performed in this work. The comparison is done among proposed work, traditional work and SVM classifier. On the basis of the obtained facts and figures, the proposed work is found to be effective and efficient in terms of the accuracy (96%) and specificity (83.333%) respectively.
