DETECTION OF BREAST ASYMMETRY USING ANATOMICAL FEATURES-A REVIEW
Radiologists can use the differences between the left and right breasts, or asymmetry, in mammograms to help detect certain malignant breast cancers. An image similarity method is introduced to make use of this knowledge base to recognize breast cancer. Image similarity is determined using a contextual and then a spatial comparison. The mammograms are filtered to find the most contextually significant points, and then the resulting point set is analysed for spatial similarity. An image similarity method is introduced to make use of this knowledge base to recognize breast cancer. We review analysis of breast asymmetry and thus asymmetry is a measure that can play an important role in significantly improving computer-aided breast cancer detection systems.
