Breast lesion segmentation is an essential step in developing Computer-aided Diagnostic (CAD) system for the early detection of breast cancer. However, accurate lesion segmentation is challenging, since the lesions may have complicated topological structures and different intensity distributions. This paper describes a novel approach for breast lesion segmentation from dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) using a level set-based active contour model. Its evolution is… CONTINUE READING
