Mammographic density is strongly associated with breast cancer, being considered one of the most important risk indicators for the development of this type of disease. Likewise, the sensitivity of automatic breast lesion detection systems is significantly dependent on breast tissue characteristics. Therefore, the measurement of density is definitely useful for detecting breast cancer. The aim of this work is to adapt our previously developed automatic breast tissue density classification… CONTINUE READING
