Abstract

One fourth of the cancer detected in women worldwide is breast cancer which leads this as a major threat for women. There are many methods of detecting cancer among which ultra-sound strain imaging is one of the promising techniques. However, in strain sequence, not all the frames show clear tumor visibility. Consequently, in this paper we tested some well-defined algorithms to find only those frames where the tumor is comparatively clearly visible. We have used Mean Pixel Difference (MPD) and Gray- Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) to find the frames with better tumor visibility. We have tested our methods in several real-life cases and the results have been examined by a professional doctor. The MPD has an accuracy of 96.2% and the GLCM. Contrast has that of 55.55%.
