Computer Aided Detection and Diagnosis System for Breast Cancer Detection based on High Resolution 3D Micro-CT Breast Microcalcifications 

Microcalcification (MCs) presence in breast tissue, is a key indicator to detect suspicious breast lesions. Judging the malignancy of MCs based on their appearance on mammograms, is a challenging task for radiologists as superposition of tissue may alter their appearance.  In our study, we propose a CAD system to detect breast cancer based on characteristics of individual MCs by scanning breast tissue with micro-CT, a high-resolution 3D screening modality.


Redona Brahimetaj received her master degree in Master in Applied Computer Science and Engineering at Vrije University Brussels in June 2018 .  Starting from 1stof January 2019, she is a PhD research at VUB funded from Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) for her 4-years studies.
