Abstract

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women worldwide. Image registration plays an important role in breast cancer detection. This paper gives an overview of the current state-of-the-art in the breast image registration techniques. For the intra-modality registration techniques, X-ray, MRI, and ultrasound are the primary focuses of interest. Inter-modality techniques will cover the combination of different modalities. Validation of breast registration methods is also discussed.
