Malignancy of a cancer is one of the most important factors that are taken into consideration during breast cancer. Depending on the malignancy grade the appropriate treatment is suggested. In this paper we make use of the Bloom-Richardson grading system, which is widely used by pathologists when grading breast cancer malignancy. Here we discuss the use of two categories of cells features for malignancy classification. The features are divided into polymorphic features that describe nuclei… Expand
