Breast cancer is one of the most important cause to mortality rate among women. Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) schemes have been developed as a tool in detecting early breast cancer. This can be an important tool in mammography since previous studies have been indicated that the detection of breast cancer can be increased up to 20% when assisted by a CAD scheme. One of the main stages of such process is thus the segmentation of structures of interest, as the suspect masses. However, when… CONTINUE READING
