Abstract

Medical imaging using image sensors play an essential role in effective diagnosis. Therefore, it is of interest to use medical imaging techniques for the diagnosis of thyroid-linked dysfunction. Ultrasound is the low-cost image processing technique to study internal organs and blood flow in blood vessels. Digital processed images help to distinguish between normal, benign and malignant tissue stages in organs. Hence, it is of importance to discuss the design and development of a computer-aided image-processing model for thyroid nodule identification, classification and diagnosis.
