Abstract

A wavelet analysis approach to contrast enhancement in mammography is presented. The approach consists of application of non-linear enhancement of multiscale gradient magnitudes utilising edge location information. The performance of wavelet analysis is evaluated by means of a breast phantom. Preliminary results indicate the value of the approach in contrast enhancement and edge preservation for both simulated tumours and microcalcifications.
