Structural image texture and early detection of breast cancer

  title={Structural image texture and early detection of breast cancer},
  author={Shijia W Lu and Murk J. Bottema},
Structural texture measures are used to address three aspects of early detection of breast cancer in screening mammograms: detection of microcalcification, detection and classification of clustered microcalcification as benign or malignant, and the detection of invasive lobular carcinoma. The use of structural texture features replaces the task of initial detection of complex and poorly modelled image structures such as masses or clustered microcalcifications by initial detection of primitive… CONTINUE READING
