Novel Segmentation Technique Using Wavelet Based Active Contour Model for Detection of Mammographic Lesions
A. Nagappan, A. Prabhu Britto, R.S.D. Wahida Banu and N. Malmurugan

Abstract:
This research proposes a novel segmentation technique based on wavelet based active contour model for detection of mammographic lesions. Mammography is the primary imaging technique for the detection and diagnosis of breast lesions. A new segmentation technique using Wavelet based active contour segmentation algorithm has been proposed and tested for segmenting the mammogram lesions in this research. This new technique incorporates wavelet refinement for better fitting. Experimental studies establish that the proposed segmentation technique gives better segmentation results in detecting the mammographic lesion in comparison to few other existing algorithms. This indicates that the proposed technique is a good segmentation technique.
