Model-based Region Of Interest selection in dynamic breast MRI
Participant : Florence Forbes.
Joint work with Nathalie Peyrard (INRA, Avignon), Chris Fraley and Adrian Raftery (Statistics Department, University of Washington, Seattle).
The project started as a collaboration between the University of Washington Department of Statistics, the University of Washington Breast Imaging Center, and Toshiba America MRI, with the latter two collaborating to acquire the data. In a first version of this work  only three patients were analysed. We then had to extend the analysis and analyze data from patients that we had not analyzed for the first version. Changes in some of the participants affiliation, together with human subjects constraints, meant that it was logistically complicated for us to get permission to analyze the new data and then to recover them. In the end we did succeed to extend our analyis to 19 patients, and the results were very good .
