Combination of Novel Enhancement Technique and Fuzzy C Means Clustering Technique in Breast Cancer Detection.

Computer aided detection (CAD) is the main aid used by radiologists in detecting microcalcification in digital mammogram for the early detection of breast cancer. In this paper we have improved the preprocessing method involves in CAD by modifying the local range modification (LRM) as modified LRM (MLRM) for the noise removal and enhancement. And we have combined this method with the fuzzy C means clustering (FCMC) method and tested for over 30 mammogram images and found the microcalcification detection accuracy of 98.1 % which is better than the other existing methods.
