Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women in the world. With the advanced improvement in thermal imaging technology, dynamic digital thermography can be applied to medical procedures for early detection of many health conditions including breast cancer often before they can be picked up by standard medical tests. Digital thermography is a totally non-invasive, non-contact clinical imaging procedure that diagnoses abnormal areas in the body by measuring heat emitted from the skin surface and expressing the measurements into a thermal map called thermograms. It could assist in medical imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring of various diseases and physical injuries. The usage of breast thermogram as a detection tool of cancerous cell growth is being investigated nowadays. It can detect the cancerous growth in its early age, then later to be confirmed by mammography or any other technique. Mammography alone cannot detect cancerous cell in its early age and the usage of digital thermography alone cannot pinpoint exactly at where the cancerous cell location for further treatment, thus both of them work in harmony. This project attempts to ease the work of clinician to analyze data extracted from thermogram by developing a computerized system for early detection of breast cancer, monitoring and grading of abnormality in medical digital thermogram.
