Neural Systems Approach for Ammography Finding by Utilizing Wavelet Features
A. Mallareddy  | A. Priyanka
Abstract: We present an application of artificial neural networks to mammographic images, aimed at improving early detection of sensitivity to breast cancer. The proposed application consists of two main steps: a pre-treatment step whose role is to extract the characteristics of the available mammographic images using the wavelet and co-occurrence (GLCM) matrices approach and a classification step based on an artificial neural network that uses these characteristics as input vectors for its training algorithm. The output of the training phase of this model is a categorization of the pre-treated images into three main groups: normal, benign and malignant. After the training phase, the network can be used in order to label new and unseen images as one of these three types.
