Abstract

In this study, the authors present the results of color enhancement processing applied on 82 X-ray mammograms of 40 cases by Digital Color Composition Technique. It was found that, after the processing the image on the films was more clear, rich in details, and easier to compare with each other. By this technique, the structure and edge of the tumor were displayed more clearly than by common X-ray mammography, an advantage helping to distinguish benign tumors from the malignant, and misdiagnosis on the nature of the tumors was corrected in 6 cases. The technique was shown to be especially valuable in the diagnosis of a tumor less than 0.5 cm in diameter.
