To provide an affordable system for the early detection of breast cancer, AmritaWNA is involved with the development of computer aided diagnosis system using Infrared Imaging Techniques which is capable of detecting the abnormality even ten years before the on-set of the disease. Thermal Camera based system integrated with wireless technology will be developed for the accessability of far away hospitals from the rural areas in India. The smart phone based analysis and preprocessing of the acquired thermograms is proposed for the first level screening. The thermograms will be sent to server which is kept at urban hospitals for the further analysis and diagnosis.
