Early detection of breast cancer in the mammograms is very essential in the field of medicine. Contrast enhancement of mammograms based on Histogram Equalization (HE) is presented. Histogram equalization is an effective and simple technique for contrast enhancement. The standard histogram equalization (HE) usually results in excessive contrast enhancement because of lack of control on the level of enhancement. The Histogram Modified Local Contrast Enhancement (HM-LCE) is introduced in this… CONTINUE READING
