Rule based elimination of regions of interest in pectoral muscle on mammograms

Hayati Türe; Temel Kayıkçıoğlu 2016 24th Signal Processing and Communication Application Conference (SIU), 2016

In process of computer-aided detection of anomaly regions in mammography images, the pectoral muscle region may involve false positives. In this study, instead of extracting pectoral muscle region after detecting its boundary, elimination of false positives in this region is aimed by a ruled-based classification technique. A topographic representation that is called as iso- level contours map is used in ...


Multimodal medical case retrieval using the Dezert-Smarandache theory

Gwenole Quellec; Mathieu Lamard; Guy Cazuguel; Christian Roux; Beatrice Cochener 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

Most medical images are now digitized and stored with semantic information, leading to medical case databases. They may be used for aid to diagnosis, by retrieving similar cases to those in examination. But the information are often incomplete, uncertain and sometimes conflicting, so difficult to use. In this paper, we present a Case Based Reasoning (CBR) system for medical case ...

Previously we presented a morphologic concentric layered (MCL) algorithm for the detection of masses in screening mammograms. The algorithm achieved high sensitivity (92%) but it also generated 3.26 false positives (FPs) per image. In the present study we propose a false positive reduction strategy based on using an artificial neural network that merges feature and knowledge-based analysis of suspicious mammographic ...

An efficient content based image retrieval for normal and abnormal mammograms

Vibhav Prakash Singh; Ashim Gupta; Shubham Singh; Rajeev Srivastava 2015 IEEE UP Section Conference on Electrical Computer and Electronics (UPCON), 2015

Diagnosis of breast cancer from mammograms is a crucial task. CBIR can support radiologists in their decision to retrieve similar mammograms out of a database to compare the past cases with current case. Pectoral muscle, labels, and artifacts, present in mammograms can bias the detection procedures. So extractions of these are an essential preprocessing step in the process of CAD. ...

    Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is the process of retrieval of images from a database that are similar to a query image, using measures derived from the images themselves, rather than relying on accompanying text or annotation. To achieve CBIR, the contents of the images need to be characterized by quantitative features; the features of the query image are compared with the features of each image in the database and images having high similarity with respect to the query image are retrieved and displayed. CBIR of medical images is a useful tool and could provide radiologists with assistance in the form of a display of relevant past cases. One of the challenging aspects of CBIR is to extract features from the images to represent their visual, diagnostic, or application-specific information content. In this book, methods are presented for preprocessing, segmentation, landmarking, feature extraction, and indexing of mammograms for CBIR. The preprocessing steps include anisotropic di fusion and the Wiener filter to remove noise and perform image enhancement. Techniques are described for segmentation of the breast and fibroglandular disk, including maximum entropy, a moment-preserving method, and Otsu's method. Image processing techniques are described for automatic detection of the nipple and the edge of the pectoral muscle via analysis in the Radon domain. By using the nipple and the pectoral muscle as landmarks, mammograms are divided into their internal, external, upper, and lower parts for further analysis. Methods are presented for feature extraction using texture analysis, shape analysis, granulometric analysis, moments, and statistical measures. The CBIR system presented provides options for retrieval using the Kohonen self- organizing map and the k-nearest-neighbor method. Methods are described for inclusion of expert knowledge to reduce the semantic gap in CBIR, including the query point movement method for relevance feedback (RFb). Analysis of performanc is described in terms of precision, recall, and relevance-weighted precision of retrieval. Results of application to a clinical database of mammograms are presented, including the input of expert radiologists into the CBIR and RFb processes. Models are presented for integration of CBIR and computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) with a picture archival and communication system (PACS) for efficient workflow in a hospital.
