Mammograms are the soft X-rays kind of imaging technique used for the detection of any lesions or cysts in breasts. Digital mammograms have many kinds of artifacts that affect the accuracy of the detection of tumor tissues in the automated Computer Aided Detection (CAD) system for mammograms. Preprocessing helps to remove such artifacts is an important step. Image preprocessing is used to maintain image efficiency in mammogram images there are many artifacts need to be removed like labels…

Pre-processing of Mammography Image for Early Detection of Breast Cancer

The proposed show that the wiener filter and Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization techniques efficiently aids for enhancing the quality of the image, thereby it also removes the unwanted background and the pectoral muscle by using thresholding and modified region growing technique respectively.

Early diagnosis of breast cancer using contrast limited adaptive histogram equalization (CLAHE) and Morphology methods

The study depicts that the purposed solution can help to enhance mammogram images for the further processing for segmentation, feature extraction and classification, however, further testing and implementation of proper classification method needed for before clinical use.

Detection of Malignancy in Digital Mammograms from Segmented Breast Region Using Morphological Techniques

The proposed research intends to develop an image processing algorithm in identifying malignancy by using an automated segmentation technique for mammogram to extract the malignant masses in mammograms for detection of breast cancer.

Pre-processing of Mammogram Images

An automated system for assisting the analysis of digital mammograms will be developed and computer image processing techniques will be applied to enhance images and this will be followed by segmentation of the region of interest (ROI).

A Study On Preprocessing A MammogramImage Using Adaptive Median Filter

This paper attempts to study about pre-processing is the most important step in the mammogram analysis due to poor captured mammogram image quality, and concludes that the adaptive median filter is best for mammograms image noise removal and gives better performance by estimating the PSNR values.
