Our study presents a fully automatic tumor segmentation method using three-dimensional (3D) breast ultrasound (US) images. The proposed method is an approach based on 2D image processing techniques, which considers the variations of contours between two adjacent planes in a 3D dataset. In this approach, a reference image obtained in the previous plane was used to facilitate the segmentation in the next plane. To determine the initial reference image, we extracted five features from regions in… CONTINUE READING
