A low cost wavelet based mammogram image processing for early detection of breast cancer.


We report a low cost wavelet based image processing technique using MATLAB for detecting the calcification on a relatively less sophisticated computing platform. The paper analyzed sample mammograms and reports the success of the algorithms as the unit cost of patient treatment is much lower than the existing one. In the existing scenario, there is a consistent increase in the unit cost of treatment to the patients owing to the requirement of the sophisticated computing hardware and Computer Aided Design Tools. Hence, the proposed low cost approach may benefit the marginalized sectors of the society.

Keywords: Mammograms, image processing, wavelet, MATLAB, cancer.
