Paper Abstract

An algorithm for the autoitatic detection of clusters of calcifications in digital marrtinograrrts has been developed using image analysis techniques. The results for 50 complete clinical mammograms show that the algorithm achieves 100 true positive cluster detection rate with a false detection rate of 5 clus ters. 1.
