We aim to provide robust diagnosis of medical images by taking into consideration the physical conditions under which the object of interest was imaged. For example, for soft objects, such as the breast where useful information for diagnosis can be gleaned through integrative analysis of several images, we can use simulation of the breast deformation which takes place when the breast is imaged.
