  • This paper presents a new pipeline for the segmentation of breast in 3D MR images which can be used to calculate breast density; an important risk factor in determining the possibility of breast cancer. We propose an efficient atlas-based segmentation algorithm that classifies atlas images based on local phase information and uses groupwise registration to create centroid for each class. To segment a target image, it is first determined which class it belongs to. Next, a nonrigid registration… CONTINUE READING
