Anatomical Visions of Prostate Cancer in Different Modalities


  • UIET, Panjab University, Chandigarh - 160014, Punjab, India


Objectives: Prostate cancer (CaP) is the second utmost diagnosed cancer among aged men all over the world. CaP contributes as a main health issue for men, posing a challenge to oncologists, urologists, and radiologists for diagnosis purpose. Methods: There are several ways to delineate the prostate capsule using different imaging modalities, which act as one of the vital step for development of Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system. Findings: In order to assist novice researchers for CaP diagnosis, this paper presents the general working theme of CAD system and highlights the different classes of existing prostate segmentation techniques. In order to study different cancerous or non-cancerous anatomical views of CaP in different modalities, the key role of this paper is to fill the gap between the actual CaP view and beginner perception about CaP Region of Interest (ROI). Application/Improvement: Various research gaps that are current open challenges for competent and effective development of Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system for CaP are also a part of this paper.
