Abstract

Determination of breast tumors from B-Mode Ultrasound (US) image is a perplexing one. Researches employing statistical modeling such as Nakagami, Normal Inverse Gaussian (NIG) distributed parametric images in this classification task have already explored but experimentation of those statistical models on contourlet transformed coefficient image in breast tumor classification task has not reported yet. The proposed method is established by considering 250 clinical cases from a publicly available database. In this database each clinical case exists as *.bmp format. In the preprocessing step firstly, the ultrasound B-Mode image is binarized to detect the lesion contour. Then contourlet transformation is employed. These contourlet sub band coefficients are shown to be modeled effectively by Nakagami and NIG distributions. These Nakagami and NIG parametric images are obtained by estimating the parameters of those prior statistical distributions locally. Few shape and statistical features are chosen according to their effectiveness on those parametric images. The benign and malignant breast tumors are classified utilizing these features with different classifiers such as the support vector machine, k-nearest neighbors, fitted binary classification decision tree, binary Gaussian kernel classification model, linear classification models for binary learning with high-dimensional etc. It is observed that classification performance of NIG statistical model based parametric version of contourlet coefficient images gained better accuracy than those of Nakagami statistical model.
