Automated Malignancy Detection in Breast Histopathological Images
SPIE Medical Imaging, 04-09 February 2012, San Diego, California, USA (bib)

Detection of malignancy from histopathological images of breast cancer is a labor-intensive and error-prone process. To streamline this process, we present an efficient Computer Aided Diagnostic system that can differentiate between cancerous and non-cancerous H&E (hemotoxylin&eosin) biopsy samples. Our system uses novel textural, topological and morphometric features taking advantage of the special patterns of the nuclei cells in breast cancer histopathological images. We use a Support Vector Machine classifier on these features to diagnose malignancy. In conjunction with the maximum relevance - minimum redundancy feature selection technique, we obtain high sensitivity and specificity. We have also investigated the effect of image compression on classification performance.
