Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


A novel method to obtain correspondence between landmarks when comparing pairs of mammographic images from the same patient is presented. Our approach is based on automatically establishing correspondence between linear structures (i.e. ducts and vessels) which appear in mammograms using robust features such as orientation, width and curvature extracted from those structures. Registration results are presented which show the potential use of the developed approach for the detection of abnormalities in mammograms
