Abstract
The detection of a temperature increase or hot spots in breast thermograms can be related with high metabolic activity of disease cells. Image processing algorithms to seek mainly temperature increases above 3°C which have a high probability of being a malignancy are proposed. Also a derivative operator is used to highlights breast regions of interest (ROI). In order to determinate a medical alert, a feature descriptor of the ROI is constructed using its maximum temperature, maximum increase of temperature, sector/quadrant position in the breast, and area. The proposed algorithms are tested in a home database and a public database for mastology research.
