Real-Time Auto-Probing for Breast Cancer Detection by Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This project aims to develop a breast cancer detection system with the invention of auto-probing methodology to localize and visualize the region of cancerous lesion. This system can reduce the analysis time and enables more thorough examination for breast screening. The lesion will be coloured and exposed out on the MR images for better identification and verification of the lesion's characteristics. The region of interest selection enables the system to generate a graph which contains clearer details about the lesion. Furthermore, higher sensitivity and specificity is expected to be achieved with this system in comparison to the current practice where random probing is applied.
