Locating the surface of an object, in this case the breast, is an important first step in many imaging situations; this surface information may be a necessary part of the reconstruction, it may be needed for the cancellation of the surface reflection, or (as herein) it may be needed as a preparatory step before imaging. This paper presents two complementary approaches developed for the purpose of surface localisation. The proposed approaches are evaluated using data from both phantom measurements and volunteer scans.
