Abstract: Digital image processing is important in numerous areas of research and development which employed to process digital images and generate useful characteristics from the data, which can then be used to take critical decisions with high accuracy. These techniques are also applied for applications in the medical field, specifically in the detection of Breast Cancer. Over the years due to limitations of human observations, computers have played a significant role in detecting early signs of cancer, this conclude a development of Computer Aided Detection System (CAD) of high accuracy. This paper presents a concise review on Computer Aided Detection System which can be developed as a useful decision support system for automatic detection of breast cancer, whereby the predictions from the CAD systems can be employed to enhance diagnosis from radiologists.
