To facilitate rapid and accurate assessment, this study proposed a novel fully automatic method to detect and identify focal tumor breast lesions using both kinetic and morphologic features from dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). After motion registration of all phases of the DCE-MRI study, three automatically generated lines were used to segment the whole breast region of each slice. The kinetic features extracted from the pixel-based time-signal intensity curve… CONTINUE READING
