Breast Segmentation with Pectoral Muscle Suppression on Digital Mammograms

  title={Breast Segmentation with Pectoral Muscle Suppression on Digital Mammograms},
  author={David Raba and Arnau Oliver and Joan Mart{\'i} and Marta Peracaula and Joan Espunya},
Previous works on breast tissue identification and abnormalities detection notice that the feature extraction process is affected if the region processed is not well focused. Thereby, it is important to split the mammogram into interesting regions to achieve optimal breast parenchyma measurements, breast registration or to put into focus a technique when we search for abnormalities. In this paper, we review most of the relevant work that has been presented from 80’s to nowadays. Secondly, an… CONTINUE READING
