MENENDEZ ALONSO, Reinaldo; LOPEZ-PORTILLA VIGIL, Bárbaro; DUARTE TANO, Andy  y  OREA CORDERO, Ivis. Computer aided mass detection in mammograms. RCIM [online]. 2016, vol.8, suppl.1, pp.582-594. ISSN 1684-1859.

In this work a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) tool is presented for mass screening in digital mammograms. Developed in Matlab, it applies different techniques of Digital Image Processing to mammograms to detect the presence of lesions and isolate them from the rest of the structures of the breast. Binarization, Labeling, Seeded Region Growing, Iris filter, among others; result in an image in which the abnormality occurring stands facilitating free fault diagnosis. The results were validated using real mammograms previously diagnosed by specialists and effectiveness values were obtained in line with the expected. The result of this research is a contribution to the early diagnosis of breast lesions which could be fatal in case of late detection; as well as a useful tool for training radiologists in the learning phase.

Palabras clave : diagnosis; mass; mammograms.
