Abstract
Calcification detection in mammogram is important in breast cancer diagnosis. A super-resolution reconstruction method is proposed to reconstruct mammogram image from one single low resolution mammogram based on the compressed sensing by the contourlet transform. The initial estimation of the super-resolution mammogram is obtained by the interpolation method of the low resolution mammogram reconstructed by compressed sensing, then contourlet transform is applied respectively to the initial estimation and the reconstructed low resolution mammogram. From the statistical characteristics of the mutiscale frequency bands between the initial estimation and the reconstructed low resolution mammogram, the thresholds are estimated to integrate the high frequency of the initial estimation and the low frequency of the reconstructed low resolution mammogram. The super-resolution mammogram is achieved through the reconstruction of contourlet inverse transform. The proposed method can retrieve some details of the low resolution images. The calcification in mammogram can be detected efficiently.
