According to reports, lung cancer is gradually becoming the first cancer that threatens human life. The early stage of lung cancer is in the form of pulmonary nodules. The key issue in computer-aided diagnosis of lung tumors is to correct and accelerate rapid segmentation of diseased tissue. Therefore, this paper proposes a robust fuzzy c-mean clustering algorithm for pulmonary nodules segmentation, which can effectively improve the adaptive degree of local domain pixels. Since the information of the domain pixels does not necessarily have a positive correlation with the central pixels, the reference mechanism of domain window pixel information needs to be redefined. The robust fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm redefines the grayscale of the spatial pixel points in the domain and selects different fuzzy factors according to the reference standard. Based on this, the weights of different fuzzy factors are updated according to the characteristics of pixel points and gray fluctuation in pixel domain. The experimental results show that this method is superior to other typical algorithms in the segmentation of pulmonary nodules.
