Comparative Analysis of Image Enhancement Algorithms in Mammogram Images
Mammography is the primary imaging technique for detection and diagnosis of breast cancer; however, the contrast of a mammogram image is often poor, especially for dense and glandular tissues. In these cases the radiologist may miss some diagnostically important microcalcifications. In order to improve diagnosis of cancer correctly, image enhancement technology is often used to enhance the image and help radiologists. This paper discusses three image enhancements: Median Filter, Average Filter and Weiner Filter.
