Computer-aided detection and classification of microcalcifications in digital breast tomosynthesis

Abstract:

Currently, mammography is the most common imaging technology used in breast screening. Low dose X-rays are passed through the breast to generate images called mammograms. One type of breast abnormality is a cluster of microcalcifications. Usually, in benign cases, microcalcifications result from the death of fat cells or are due to secretion by the lobules.
