Breast Magnetic Resonance Image skin has similar intensity levels than dense tissue, and may produce segmentation errors if not managed correctly. In this work a novel skin segmentation method is presented and validated by experts, aimed to obtain as many pixels belonging to the real skin as possible. Segmented skin will be used to build a breast biomechanical model to register X-Ray Images with Magnetic Resonance Images in the future, using a virtually deformed Magnetic Resonance Image.
