A method of extracting salient image features in mammograms at multiple scales using the monogenic signal is presented. The derived local phase provides structure information (such as edge, ridge etc.) while the local amplitude encodes the local brightness and contrast information. Together with the simultaneously computed orientation, these three pieces of information can be used for mammogram segmentation including locating the inner breast edge which is important for quantitative breast… CONTINUE READING
