Remote Breast Cancer Computer-Aided Detection and Pre-Diagnosis
TecnolÃ³gico de Monterrey, Nuevo LeÃ³n, Mexico
This technology provides a general description of the Computer-Aided Detection and Diagnosis of Breast Cancer. This research project is to apply machine learning techniques combined with computer vision to mammograms, which will be used for detecting and pre-diagnosing breast cancer at its earliest stages, when it can still be cured.
