Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancer types among women. Sonography has been regarded as an important imaging modality for diagnosis of breast lesions. Due to the speckle and the variance in shape and appearance of sonographic lesions, fully automatic segmentation of the breast tumor regions still remains a challenging task. In this paper, we propose an automatic interaction scheme based on an object recognition method to segment the lesions in breast ultrasound images. In… CONTINUE READING
