Abstract: Early detection of breast cancer is believed to enhance the chance of survival. Mammography is the best available breast imaging technique at present which uses low-dose x-rays for detecting the breast cancer early before the symptoms are experienced. The most commonly present abnormalities in mammograms that may indicate the breast malignancy are masses and microcalcifications. The prime objective of this research is to increase the diagnostic accuracy of the detection of breast cancer malignancy in Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems by developing image processing algorithms and to categorize the women into different risk groups. The evaluation of SVM classifier has been considered. Initially, tumors have been detected from mammograms with the aid of morphological processing of breast images. Then classification is done by SVM classifier using the most dominant features namely GLRLM and Difference of Gaussian (DoG) features, which have been extracted from the selected region. The algorithm has achieved an accuracy of 89.11% using SVM classifier.
Keywords: CT, SVM, GLRLM , DoG.
