Paper Abstract

Breast cancer is one of the principal causes of death for women in the world. Invasive breast cancer develops in about one in eight women in the United States during her lifetime. Digital mammography is a common technique for early detection of the breast cancer. However, only 84% of breast cancers are detected by interpreting radiologists. Computer Aided Detection (CAD) is a technology designed to help radiologists and to decrease observational errors. Actually, for every true-positive cancer detected by the CAD there are more false predictions, which have to be ignored by radiologists. In this work, a CAD method for detection and classification of breast abnormalities is proposed. The proposed method is based on the local energy and phase congruency approach and a supervised machine learning classifier. Experimental results are presented using digital mammography dataset and evaluated under different performance metrics.
