Preparing Mammograms for Classification Task: Processing and Analysis of Mammograms

By Aderonke A. Kayode Babajide S.Afolabi Bolanle O. Ibitoye

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2016

Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women in the world. Mammography has become indispensable for early detection of breast cancer. Radiologists interpret patients’ mammograms by looking for some significant visual features for decision making. These features could have different interpretations based on expert’s opinion and experience. Therefore, to solve the problem of different interpretations among experts, the use of computer in facilitating the processing and analysis of mammograms has become necessary.
This study enhanced and segmented suspicious areas on mammograms obtained from Radiology Department, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. Also, Features were extracted from the segmented region of interests in order to prepare them for classification task.
The result of implementation of enhancement algorithm used on mammograms shows all the subtle and obscure regions thereby making suspicious regions well visible which in turn helps in isolating the regions for extraction of textural features from them. Also, the result of the feature extraction shows pattern that will enable a classifier to classify these mammograms to one of normal, benign and malignant classes.

An Integrated Knowledge Base System Architecture for Histopathological Diagnosis of Breast Diseases

By Aderonke A. Kayode Babajide S.Afolabi Kayode A. Adelusola

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Dec. 2012

The histopathological diagnosis of breast diseases requires highly trained and experienced experts, and often strains pathologists’ cognitive capabilities. Accurate and timely diagnosis of breast diseases is essential for the appropriate management of the patients.
The paper presents a knowledge base system that uses a combination of rule-based and case-based techniques to achieve the diagnosis. Rule-based systems handle problems with well-defined knowledge bases this limits the flexibility of such system. Case-based reasoning has been adopted to overcome this inherent weakness of rule-based systems by incorporating previous cases in the generation of new cases to improve the performance of the system. The result of this research shows that the system is capable of assisting pathologists in making accurate, consistent and timely diagnoses. The system also aid in eliminating errors of omission that have been viewed as a prominent cause of medical errors. In conclusion this paper investigated the histological features used in the diagnosis of breast diseases and proposed an integrated knowledge base system based on the features.
