PR Pavithra, KS Ravichandran, KR Sekar, R Manikandan.


Image processing technique in general, involves the application of signal processing on the input image for isolating the individual color plane of an image. Cancer has generally an abnormal cell that grows and invade healthy cells in the body. Breast cancer occurs when malignant tumors develop in the breast. Early detection of the breast cancer can effective in increasing the rate of survival. There are several Medical image techniques which has been used for detecting breast cancer. The survey explored the needs for the thermography over other screening tools. Thermography detects and records temperature changes on the surface of the skin which is known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI). Thermography is known for its features like non-invasive, painless, cost effective and high chances of recovery, which has got ability to detect the breast cancer at near beginning. There is no such tool which provides accurate predictability unless biopsy. But the combination of tools with thermography may boost the sensitivity and specificity when compared with other mechanisms.

Key words: Breast cancer detection, Medical Image techniques, Thermography, Digital infrared thermal imaging.
