Motivation l.jpg

Motivation

  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today

  • X-Ray Mammography is currently the primary method of early detection

  • Interpretation of Mammograms is difficult

  • Radiologists often use CAD for prompting

X-Ray Mammography

Motivation

  • Capability of X-ray mammography is limited by its 2D representation

  • Other imaging modalities can obtain a full 3D representation of the breast

Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • Cancer is a disease that causes cells in the body to divide and reproduce abnormally without control

  • Breast cancer refers to a malignant tumor that has developed from breast cells


Breast anatomy l.jpg

Breast Anatomy

  • The breast has two main components: glandular tissue and connective tissue


Suspicious regions l.jpg

Suspicious Regions

  • Calcifications are tiny calcium deposits within the breast tissue

    • Microcalcifications

    • Macrocalcifications

  • Masses

    • Solid

    • Liquid (Cyst)


Doctors questions l.jpg

Doctors Questions

  • Is there a tumor in the breast?

  • Is the tumor benign or malignant?

  • Is it a mass, a cyst or a microcalcification cluster?

  • What’s the location of the tumor?

  • What’s the size of the tumor?

  • How dense is the breast?

  • What’s the extension of the cancer?


Imaging technologies l.jpg

Imaging Technologies

  • X-Ray Mammography

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • Full-Field Digital Mammography

  • Nuclear Imaging

  • Tomosynthesis

  • Ultrasound

Ultrasound

X-Ray

MRI


Dynamic contrast enhanced mri l.jpg

Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI

  • A tumor is usually well vascularized due to its strong growth

  • The absorption of contrast-medium in suspicious regions is perceptible

Without contrast

With contrast

Intravenous catheter


Study of contrast agent s flow l.jpg

Study of contrast agent’s flow

  • Type I: steady enhancement (straight or curved)

  • Type II: plateau of signal intensity

  • Type III: washout of signal

Benign lesion

Possible malignancy

Strongly suggest malignancy


Answers using dce mri l.jpg

Answers using DCE-MRI

  • Is there a tumor in the breast?

    • Segment the contrast agent

  • Is the tumor benign or malignant?

    • Study of contrast agent’s flow

    • Extract features and use them to classify the tumors

  • Is it a mass, a cyst or a microcalcification cluster?

    • Quantify segmented region(s)

  • What’s the location of the tumor?

    • Estimate position of tumor’s center


Answers using dce mri12 l.jpg

Answers using DCE-MRI

  • What’s the size of the tumor?

    • Calculate largest tumor diameter

    • Calculate volume based on segmented voxels

  • How dense is the breast?

    • Segment glandular tissue + quantification


Answers using dce mri13 l.jpg

Answers using DCE-MRI

  • What’s the extension of the cancer?

    • Classify as invasive or non-invasive

Non-invasive

Invasive
