Abstract

Detection of masses in digital mammograms may helps in an early diagnosis of breast cancer. In this paper, we proposed method to detect high probability of mass areas based on texture feature analysis. Firstly, an automated segmentation of region of interests (ROIs) is done using 8-bit quantization technique. Then, Gray Level Co occurrence Matrices (GLCM) at four directions is constructed for each ROIs. This is due to the fact that the Gray Level Co occurrence Matrices (GLCM) may provide the texture-context information. The results prove that the Gray Level Co occurrence Matrices(GLCM) at 0 degrees, 45 degrees, 90 degrees and 135 degrees with a block size of 8x8 give significant texture information to identify between masses and non-masses tissues.
