A novel technology to provide a quick and accurate solution for locating breast tumors


An automated 3D annotation technology for breast ultrasound imaging

Breast ultrasound is an important imaging method for breast cancer because of its advantages of being non-invasive, low-cost and high performance in differentiating malignant masses from benign masses. Spatial annotation is an essential step for the follow-up diagnosis and treatment to be performed. However, the current annotation is a manual method which takes time to get the result. In addition, the accuracy is highly dependent on the experience of the medical specialists that is relatively prone to errors. In order to improve the entire process, PolyU has developed a novel automated three-dimensional (3D) annotation method for breast ultrasound imaging. This new annotation method is able to uplift the accuracy, intuitivism and speed of breast ultrasound diagnosis.
