Sparse feature analysis for detection of clustered microcalcifications in mammogram images

  1. 1. SPARSE FEATURE ANALYSIS FOR DETECTION OF CLUSTERED MICROCALCIFICATIONS IN MAMMOGRAM IMAGES Wonyong Eom, Wesley De Neve, and Yong Man Ro Image and Video Systems Lab Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) Daejeon, South Korea e-mail: website: - FeaturesI. INTRODUCTION Table. 1. Feature types and dimensionality- Observation Features Dimension • Computer-aided detection (CADe) of clustered microcalcifications First Order Statistics (FOS) 16 (MCs) in mammogram image is one of the most effective tools for Rotation Invariant Moment (RIM) 16 detecting early-stage breast cancer. Spatial Gray Level Difference (SGLD) 52 Gray Level Run Length (GLRL) 20 • A number of CADe systems have recently introduced the use of Laws’ Texture Features (LAW) 250 sparse representation based classification (SRC).

Effectiveness of dictionary size ROIs ROIs - We gradually reduced the number of dictionary atoms from 90% of the available samples to 50% of the available samples. - This implied that smaller dictionaries were subsets of larger dictionaries.

Sparse representation based classification methodIII. EXPERIMENTS1. Experimental setup - Dataset • We made use of 180 malignancy-containing X-ray images randomly taken from the Digital Database for Screening Mammography(DDSM). • From these images, we obtain 434 malignant ROIs and 2556 normal Fig. 3.

CONCLUSIONS detection. - Our experimental results show that the use of texture features is more • We used 10 percent of the positive samples and 10 percent of the effective than the use of shape and morphology features. negative samples for the purpose of testing, while the remaining - SRC based MCs detection with LAW and the combination LAW+LBP is samples were used for the purpose of dictionary construction. We highly promising. repeated this ten times with different test sets, and then averaged - Our experimental results show that the more atoms in the dictionary, the results obtained for each run in order to compute the final the higher the discriminative power of SRC-based CADe system. results.
