Detection of masses based on asymmetric regions of digital bilateral mammograms using spatial description with variogram and cross-variogram functions


A mammogram is an examination of the breast intended to prevent and diagnose breast cancer. In this work we propose a methodology for detecting masses by determining certain asymmetric regions between pairs of mammograms of the left and the right breast. The asymmetric regions are detected by means of structural variations between corresponding regions… (More)
