A mammogram is the standard modality used for breast cancer screening. Computer-aided detection (CAD) approaches are helpful for improving breast cancer detection rates when applied to mammograms. However, automated analysis of a mammogram often leads to inaccurate results in the presence of the pectoral muscle. Therefore, it is necessary to first handle pectoral muscle segmentation separately before any further analysis of a mammogram. One difficulty to overcome when segmenting out pectoral… CONTINUE READING
