Image processing and image mastology analyses

This research intends to help in diagnostic by medical imaging, with the purpose of aiding in the early diagnosis and classification of breast diseases (benign/malignant). The project aims to integrate the main stages of image processing methods, in order to: the interpretation of the images; identification of tissue and anatomical and functional structures. The project extends from the acquisition of images and their organization in databases, through image analysis using numerical methods, until a final stage, where machine learning techniques must be used in order to be a feature extraction of breast images.
