This paper presents an automatic method to segment and correct motion artifact on dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). The breast region is segmented from DCE-MRI using mathematical morphology, region growing, and active contour models. The motion artifact presented in the image is then corrected by applying B-spline curve fitting, active contour model and forward mapping algorithm. Our segmentation method has been tested on 72 DCR-MRI studies from 33 patients. The average segmentation accuracy was 96.76%, and the confidence interval was [95.55%, 97.97%] with p<0.05. Simulation and validation experiments for motion correction are working in progress. The detail experimental results were presented at the conference. The paper represents work-in-progress in our effort to build a CAD system for breast DCE-MRI
