This study is part of the research of improving early detection of breast cancer in screening mammograms by focusing on computerized analysis and detection of cancers missed by radiologists. It is directed to the analysis of breast density in missed cancer cases and the effect of tissue density on cancer detection. A total of 100 missed cancer cases were(More)
This paper presents a study of the analysis of breast density in missed cancer cases and the effect of tissue density on cancer detection. A total of 100 missed cancer cases were collected. The breast density tissue was segmented with a statistical-based method. A set of tests was then applied to examine: (1) the differences in density between the(More)
The development of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) methods to improve a radiologist's decision-making in reading mammography is facing a bottle-neck problem. One critical reason is that almost all current CAD methods are actually developed to perform as an independent "reader" rather than a complementary assistant "second reader" to the radiologists.
