Abstract
Breast thermography uses ultrasensitive infrared cameras to produce high resolution images of temperatures and vascular changes. In the present work we propose the development of computational methods that allow the analysis and digital processing of breast thermographic images for the detection of regions related to a probable lesion. A semi-automated segmentation algorithm is presented by means of polynomial curve Ötting for the detection a region of breast (ROI). A public database which contains information on volunteers with diagnose made by mammography and biopsy is used.
