Abstract

The detection of microcalcifications is a hard task,since they are quite small and often poorly contrasted against thebackground of images. The Computer Aided Detection (CAD)systems could be very useful for breast cancer control. In thispaper, we report a method to enhance microcalcifications clusterin digital mammograms. A Fuzzy Logic clustering algorithm witha set of features is used for clustering microcalcifications. Themethod described was tested on simulated clusters ofmicrocalcifications, so that the location of the cluster within thebreast and the exact number of microcalcifications is known.
