Abstract
In this work some segmentation techniques are evaluated by using a simple centroid-based classification system regarding breast mass delineation in digital mammography images. The aim is to determine the best one for future CADx developments. Six techniques were tested: Otsu, SOM, EICAMM, Fuzzy C-Means, K-Means and Level-Set. All of them were applied to segment 317 mammography images from DDSM database. A single compact set of attributes was extracted and two centroids were defined, one for malignant and another for benign cases. The final classification was based on proximity with a given centroid and the best results were presented by the Level-Set technique with a 68.1% of Accuracy, which indicates this method as the most promising for breast masses segmentation aiming a more precise interpretation in schemes CADx.
