Microcalcification Detection in Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Using an Epipolar Curve Approach

Abstract:
The detection of microcalcifications is a key task in the early detection of breast cancer. Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) offers new opportunities to improve existing microcalcification detection methods. By utilizing the multiple projections in DBT, and a model of the DBT acquisition system, we propose the use of epipolar curves to constrain the position of a microcalcification in the multiple DBT views. We show how this can improve both the sensitivity and specification of microcalcification detection. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
