Lung cancer is one of the most important cancer in the world. Among them, Ground Glass Opacity（GGO）has a hazy area of increased attenuation in the lung image. In recent years, development of a Computer Aided Diagnosis （CAD）system for reducing the burden on work load and improving the detection rate of lesions has been advanced. In this paper, we propose a CAD system to extract GGO from CT images. Firstly, we extract the lung region from the input CT images and remove the vessel, and bronchial region based on 3 D line filter algorithm. After that, we extract initial GGO regions using concentration and gradient information. Next, we calculate the statistical features on the segmented regions. After that, we classify GGO regions using support vector machine（SVM）. Finally, we detect the final GGO regions using deep convolutional neural network（DCNN）. The proposed method is tested on 31 cases of CT images from the Lung Image Database Consortium（LIDC）. The results demonstrate that the proposed method has 86.05[%] of true positive rate and 39.03[/case] of false positive number.
