Abstract:

This paper will investigate the characteristics of women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer, features of cancer tissue on X-rayMRIPET images and correlation of the research findings with oncologist data. There is a need to design of image processing techniques for the diagnosis and monitoring of cervical cancer at Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute Melbourne. These techniques will require an advanced software platform to store and retrieve cancer patient images in database. Advanced algorithms for analysing stored images are required to help the detection of the degree of the spread of cancer with patients. This project aims at designing and testing such techniques. The outcomes of this project will be a software and display of graphical view on computer screen which will be used doctors of Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute to improve the current detection cancer detection techniques.
