Presentation of images of lesions similar to that of an unknown lesion might be useful to radiologists in distinguishing between benign and malignant clustered microcalcifications on mammograms. Investigators have been developing computerized schemes to select similar images from large databases. However, whether selected images are really similar in appearance is not examined for most of the schemes. In order to retrieve images that are useful to radiologists, the selected images must be… CONTINUE READING
