Abstract

"In medical imaging it is a very common practice to use a technique known as Time-Step imaging in patients who might develop cancer. Time-Step imaging it a very powerful technique, however it can lead to unmanageable amounts of image data. Previously the only way to search all of this data was to manually look through all of the files. This had to be done by trained professionals who knew what to look for within the images and make a judgment about the patient based on the images. This paper discusses the development of an algorithm to have a computer search through these data files, and only surface the patients and images that have a high probability of having cancer. This allows the trained professionals to spend more time closely analyzing the few images that were marked as high risk."--Abstract, page iii.
