Abstract

In this paper we propose a Multiple Classifier System (MCS) for classifying breast lesions in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced-Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI). The proposed MCS combines the results of two classifiers trained with dynamic and morphological features respectively. Twenty-one malignant and seventeen benign breast lesions, histologically proven, were analyzed. Volumes of Interest (VOIs) have been automatically extracted via a segmentation procedure assessed in a previous study. The performance of the MCS have been compared with histological classification. Results indicated that with automatic segmented VOIs 90% of test-set lesions were correctly classified.
