The evaluation of kinetic and/or morphologic characteristics of non-masses represents a challenging task for an automated analysis and is of crucial importance for advancing current computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems. Compared to the well-characterized mass-enhancing lesions, non-masses have not well-dened and blurred tumor borders and a kinetic behavior that is not easily generalizable and thus discriminative for malignant and benign non-masses. To overcome these diculties and pave the way for novel CAD systems for non-masses, we will evaluate several kinetic and morphologic descriptors separately, and a novel technique, the Zernike velocity moments, to capture the joint spatio-temporal behavior of these lesions. We additionally consider the impact of non-rigid motion compensation on a correct diagnosis.
