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.
