Classification of clusters of microcalcifications in digital breast tomosynthesis.

Abstract:

The detection of microcalcifications, reconstruction of clusters of microcalcifications and their subsequent classification into malignant and benign are important tasks in the early detection of breast cancer. Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) provides new opportunities in such tasks. By utilizing the multiple projections in DBT and using the geometry of DBT, we have developed an approach to them based on epipolar curves. It improves the sensitivity and specificity in detection; provides in...
