Hi all! I am working on mammogram image segmentation using MATLAB. I have a doubt. Is there any possibility to segment the original image using its edge detected image? Can the edge detected image can act as filter for the original image for segmentation? For this process do I need to convert the edge detected image to matrix format for segmentation? If possible can someone provide me sample code?

I don't know the current best approaches for finding anomalies in mammograms. I suggest you look here http://iris.usc.edu/Vision-Notes/bibliography/contentsmedical.html#Medical%20Applications,%20CAT,%20MRI,%20Ultrasound,%20Heart%20Models,%20Brain%20Models When you've coded up your favorite algorithm into MATLAB, you can come back here with your programming questions. Usually we don't recommend the best algorithm for an application like this where it's not so straightforward, and biological images are usually the toughest to segment, so there is a huge variety of methods to deal with them. Maybe edge detection is the approach to use or maybe it's thresholding or texture analysis or morphology or something way more sophisticated, or a combination of approaches. I'll leave the algorithm selection up to you but we can help with the MATLAB programming part of it.
