Author Affiliations +
In this paper we apply multiscale entropy (MSE) analysis to data obtained from magnetic resonance imaging of the female breast. All cases include lesions that were histologically proven as malignant tumors. Our results indicate that multiscale entropy analysis can play an important role in the detection of tumor tissue when applied to single datasets, but does not allow to calculate universal morphological features. The performance of MSE was examined with respect to traditional features such as difference imaging.
