This paper presents a new advanced automatic edge delineation model for the detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) images. The proposed model is to improve prostate boundary detection system by modifying a set of preprocessing algorithms including tree-structured nonlinear filter (TSF), directional wavelet transforms (DWT) and tree-structured wavelet transform (TSWT). The model consists of a preprocessing module and a segmentation module. The preprocessing… CONTINUE READING
