Segmentation of an image into its components plays an important role in most of the image processing applications. In this article an important application of image processing in determination of Breast Cancer is studied, and A Novel Image Segmentation Technique is proposed in order to determine Cancer in Breast Thermograms. First, this image is converted from RGB to color space HSV. Then Breast shape is extracted by ACM algorithm. Finally, the image has segmented using Color Reduction Based
