Paper Abstract

Breast soft tissues have similar x-ray attenuations to mass tissue. Overlapping breast tissue structure often obscures mass and microcalcification, essential to the early detection of breast cancer. In this paper, we propose new method to generate the high contrast mammogram with distinctive features of a breast cancer by using multiple images with different x-ray energy spectra. On the experiments with mammography simulation and real breast tissues, the proposed method has provided noticeable images with obvious mass structure and microcalifications.
