Cancer Imaging Phenomics Toolkit (CaPTk)  1.8.0.Beta
Breast Cancer: Breast Segmentation

This application uses LIBRA [1] to extract the breast region in the loaded image and is only availabe via the GUI (the Breast Texture Pipeline can be used to generate a mask and perform radiomic analysis via the command line).

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Raw (i.e., "FOR PROCESSING") or vendor post-processed (i.e., "FOR PRESENTATION") FFDM images.
  • FFDM vendors currently supported: GE Healthcare and Hologic.
  • Each image stored in a separate folder.

USAGE:

  1. Load the FFDM image using the 'File -> Load -> Images' menu option.
  2. Launch LIBRA using the 'Applications -> Breast Segmentation' menu option.
  3. Output is loaded automatically.
