Detection of cancerous masses for screening mammography using discrete wavelet transform-based multiresolution Markov random field Academic Article uri icon


  • When cancerous masses are embedded in and camouflaged by varying densities of parenchymal tissue structures, they are difficult to visually detect on mammograms. An algorithm based on the discrete wavelet transform and multiresolution Markov random field is presented to single out the suspicious masses to assist the attending radiologist in making decisions.
