How to locate the nipple locations in mammogram?
1 visualizzazione (ultimi 30 giorni)
I'm working on the mammogram and trying to locate the nipple locations. Sometimes nipple is quite small, it may be in the breast boundary or outside of the breast, so I feel quite difficult to locate it. What I'm thinking is an algorithm to output the coordinates of the nipple pixels in the mammogram picture. Please advise what I shall do. Many thanks

With anything medical, your best option is to start with PubMed. There isn’t a lot published on nipple identification and segmentation, but when I searched with the search string (nipple & segmentation & mammogram) & english[la], I pulled up eight articles. Only one is free, but you can probably get all of them online with your university account or through your university library.
Searching with (nipple & location & mammogram) & english[la] pulled up 45 but they didn’t all look as relevant. Experiment with other search strategies.
Click on ‘Display Settings’ at the top, and choose ‘Abstract’, ‘200’ and ‘Pub Date’ for the most useful display. (I right-click on ‘Related citations’ under the article abstract and open it in a new tab if I find an interesting article.)
