About Ovarian Tumor Detection
The necessity to find an efficient way for classifying ovarian masses and detecting malignant tumors is evident, especially considering the high mortality rate due to ovarian cancer and the difficulty in detecting a tumor in the early stages of the disease. In order to quantitatively assess the malignancy of an ovarian pathology, it is common to score several properties of the ovarian mass (obtained from ultrasound images) according to a pre-determined table, and to use the resulting value for classification. Currently, no existing scoring system is based on either automatic or semi-automatic image analysis.
Major types of ovarian masses: Cysts are the most common ovarian pathology. Most of them are benign, however, some cysts are malignant. An ovarian cyst is formed when part of the ovary is filled with fluid while the ovarian tissue is compressed to the remaining volume. Since the fluid within the cyst is not echogenic, while the ovarian tissue is echogenic, the cyst in its simplest form appears in an ultrasound image as a dark region encircled by bright pixels. Cysts, however, are usually more complicated and are typically characterized by several features making them harder to accurately detect.
