Paper Abstract

Exploratory data analysis techniques are applied to the segmentation of lesions in MRI mammography as a first step of a computer-aided diagnosis system. Three new unsupervised clustering techniques are tested on biomedical time-series representing breast MRI scans: fuzzy clustering based on deterministic annealing, "neural gas" network, and topographic independent component analysis. While the first two methods enable a correct segmentation of the lesion, the latter, although incorporating a topographic mapping, fails to detect and subclassify lesions.
