An optimization approach to segment breast lesions in ultra-sound images using clinically validated visual cues

Abstract : As long as breast cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among female population world wide, developing tools to assist radiologists during the diagnosis process is necessary. However, most of the technologies developed in the imaging laboratories are rarely integrated in this assessing process, as they are based on information cues differing from those used by clinicians. In order to grant Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems with these information cues when performing non-aided diagnosis, better segmentation strategies are needed to automatically produce accurate delineations of the breast structures. This paper proposes a highly modular and flexible framework for segmenting breast tissues and lesions present in Breast Ultra-Sound (BUS) images. This framework relies on an optimization strategy and high-level de-scriptors designed analogously to the visual cues used by radiologists. The methodology is comprehensively compared to other sixteen published methodologies developed for segmenting lesions in BUS images. The proposed methodology achieves similar results than reported in the state-of-the-art.
