The purpose of this study is to explore the potential application of region conspicuity as an index of difficulty for mass detection using computer-assisted diagnosis (CAD) schemes on mammograms and to assess the performance improvement of our own CAD scheme by incorporation of conspicuity as well as other features related to tissue background.
