Multi-tumor Detection and Analysis Based on Advance Region Quantitative Approach of Breast MRI

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 768)


The proposed Advance Region Quantitative Approach (ARQA) method is used for Breast multi-tumor region segmentation which helps in decease detection and also detects the multi-tumors in different scenarios. The present approach uses the existing preprocessing methods and filters for effectual extraction and analysis of MRI images. The mass regions are well segmented and further classified as malignant disease by computing texture features based on vision gray-level co-occurrence matrices (VGCMs) and logistic regression method. The proposed algorithm is an easy approach for doctors and physicians to provide easy option for medical image analysis.
