Breast Cancer Diagnosis using Multi-Fractal Dimension Spectra

  title={Breast Cancer Diagnosis using Multi-Fractal Dimension Spectra},
  author={L. E. George and K Sager},
  journal={2007 IEEE International Conference on Signal Processing and Communications},
The research presented in this paper was aimed to develop a classification system of breast tumors tissues using histopathological images. The paper focuses on using the advantages of fractal geometry texture analysis. The developed approach consists of two main steps: (i) the extraction of the fractal dimension spectra for the regions of interest, and (ii) using a classifier that automatically identifies the kind of the tested breast tumor tissue. The performance of the classifier was enhanced… CONTINUE READING
