Paper Abstract

We present a new method for automatic detection of micro-calcifications using the Discriminative Restricted Boltzmann Machine (DRBM). The DRBM is used to automatically learn the specific features which distinguish micro-calcifications from normal tissue as well as their morphological variations. Within the DRBM, low level image structures that are specific features of micro-calcifications are automatically captured without any appropriate feature selection based on expert knowledge or time-consuming hand-tuning, which was required for previous methods. Experimental evaluation conducted on a set of 33 mammograms gave a result of area under Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curve 0.8294, which showed the effectiveness of the proposed method.
