Mammographic Breast Volume Information Software (MaVIS)

MaVIS is a software tool for estimating breast volume from the analysis of digital mammograms. The software was developed to automate the objective evaluation of Estimated Percentage of Breast Volume Excised (EPBVE) following breast conserving survey.

Traditional techniques for measuring breast volume typically involve physical patient measurements that are often time consuming, labour intensive, or invasive. MaVIS simplifies the measurement of breast volume by analysing mammograms that are routinely acquired

during mammographic screening and surgical workup.

The accuracy of the MaVIS method of breast volume calculation has been internally validated by comparison against volumetric laser scanning and Archimedes displacement technique measurements on actual mastectomy specimens.


MaVIS has been developed by the Department of Medical Technology & Physics, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Perth, Western Australia.
