In this work, a decision support system for early breast cancer detection is presented. In hard to diagnose cases, different examinations (i.e. mammography, ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging) provide contradictory findings and patient is guided to biopsy for definite results. The proposed method employs a Correlation Feature Selection procedure and an Artificial Immune Recognition System (AIRS) and is evaluated using real data collected from 53 subjects with contradictory diagnoses. Comparative results with commonly used artificial intelligence classifiers verify the suitability of the AIRS classifier. The application of such an approach can reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies.
