Image Processing & Neural Network Based Breast Cancer Detection

  •  Marwan Abo Zanona    


A large percentage of cancer patients are breast cancer patients. The main available methodology to examine the breast cancer is the Mammography. It detects the signs of breast cancer as different signs supports the experts’ decision. Actually, the Mammography is based on human perception and observations. So, build an AI computerized system will take major role in early signs detection. This paper presents an image processing with aid of artificial neural networks computations for computerized signs detection and exploration of breast cancer. The input material is the mammogram images, and the output helps the pathologists to take a decision. A set of input mammogram images was used for development, testing, and evaluation. The mammographic image will be preprocessed and then the features will be extracted using discrete wavelet transformation with aid of Weiner filtration. A historical data of extracted features were used to train a neural network, while the historical extracted features contains both Cancer and non-Cancer images. The combination of neural network machine learning, and rigid image processing techniques resulted accurate outputs. The methodology and results are showed and discussed later in this paper.
