The presence of microcalcification clusters in mammograms contributes evidence for the diagnosis of early stages of breast cancer. Computer aided diagnosis (CAD) can be used as a useful tool for improving the accuracy of the diagnosis process, and for helping the radiologists with film interpretation. In this paper, digitized mammograms are decomposed using filter banks at several levels in the transform space. Global nonlinear operator was applied on decomposed detail subband images using… CONTINUE READING
