In this paper, a novel wavelet-morphology method for the detection of mass abnormalities in digital mammograms is presented. The new scheme utilizes the feature extraction capability of the wavelet transform followed by a novel recursive-enhancement morphology algorithm to detect the masses. A morphology-based segmentation algorithm is finally applied to the enhanced image to separate the mass from the normal breast tissues. This technique outlines the shape of the region of interest (mass in mammograms). Tests results have confirmed the efficacy of the technique in automated detection of abnormalities in wavelet based compressed mammograms.
