Paper Abstract

The appearance of clustered microcalcifications in mammogram films is one of the important early signs of breast cancer. This paper presents a new image processing system for the automatic detection of clustered microcalcifications in digitized mammogram films. The detection method uses wavelet features and feed forward neural network to find possible microcalcifications pixels and a set of features to locate individual microcalcifications.
