Abstract

Research on medical image registration and segmentation are currently one of the most active areas in the particular field of medical image analysis and computer vision and pattern recognition in general. This chapter describes the main difficulties, objectives and methodology to approach three different challenges related to medical ultrasound image analysis: freehand image reconstruction, breast mass detection and multi-modality image registration. We propose novel approaches to solve those particular problems and present evaluation in terms of quantitative and qualitative analysis using our own image dataset.
