Breast density has been established as an independent risk factor associated with the development of breast cancer. The terms mammographic density and breast density are often used interchangeably, since most breast density studies are performed with projection mammography. It is known that increase in mammographic density is associated with an increased(More)
The breast density information is one of important factors for estimating the risk in breast cancer detection and early prevention. In this paper, we present two methods, including threshold-based and proportion-based, to automatically analyze the breast density using whole breast ultrasound. The two algorithms are experimented with 32 cases which are(More)
In general, several factors are used for risk estimation in breast cancer detection and early prevention, and one of the important factors in risk of breast cancer is breast density. The mammography is important and effective adjunct in diagnosing the breast cancer. The radiologists would analyze visually the breast density with the BI-RADS lexicon on(More)
