Identifying Cancer on Breast X-Ray Images





Research Areas

Regina A. Barzilay


Breast cancer is obviously a major medical issue today. Doctors need to be well-trained to successfully diagnose breast cancer from x-ray images, but they are still nowhere close to being perfect in doing so. This project’ s goal is to build a machine learning algorithm that will successfully detect and locate cancer regions in a given breast X-ray image.


Participating in SuperUROP is a great way for me to work on an important project using the Machine Learning knowledge I gained from Machine Learning (6.867) and the UROP I did with Professor Regina Barzilay last year. It will help improve my research work ethics and skills.
