Title:Malignancy Detection on Mammogram Using False-Color Enhancement via Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization

Mammography breast cancer screening over the past three decades has doubled the rate of early breast cancer detection and is credited with decreasing the mortality from breast cancer. Expert screening with current computer-aided detection (CAD) tools has sensitivity estimated between 68%-87% and specificity of 75% 91%. We present a mammography detection algorithm based upon machine learning techniques utilizing both public and proprietary training datasets. We used a committee of diversely filtered shallow Theano-based convolutional neural networks, pre- trained on ImageNet data and fine tuned using False-Color Enhanced Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalized mammographic images. Our results yield accuracy of over 98%.
