The Artificial Intelligence Center of SRI has pioneered the development of pattern-classification and scene-analysis techniques for more than a decade. In an effort to apply such disciplines to medical problems, the Institute has digitized and processed a series of breast thermograms of positive patients. To improve the medical value of such imagery for the radiologist, several off-the-shelf algorithms have been applied to the digitized images.
