An automatic framework for assessing breast cancer risk due to various hormone replacement therapies (HRT): a novel CAD application in digital mammography

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskning

It is well known that menopausal hormone therapy increases mammographic density. Increase in breast density may relate to breast cancer risk. Several computer assisted automatic methods for assessing mammographic density have been suggested by J.W. Byng (1996), N. Karssemeijer (1998), J.M. Boone(1998), S. Petroudi(2006), C. Tromans(2006) etc. All these findings aims at reproducing the radiologist’s categorical rating system or at segmenting the dense tissue to get percentage density score. Since ninety percent of breast cancers arise from the ductal and lobular glands we choose to investigate features describing the local elongatedness or stripiness, especially trained to see the effect of HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy ) thereby providing a non-subjective and reproducible measure and compare it to the BIRADS and percentage density measure.
