- Mammography's role in the detection of breast cancer at early stages is well known. Although more accurate than other existing techniques, mammography still only finds 80 to 90 percent of breast cancers. It has been suggested that mammograms, as normally viewed, display only about 3% of the total information detected. The general inability to detect small tumors and other salient features within mammograms motivates our investigation of a system we call the Mammogram Display System (MDS). The core technology used for MDS image enhancement is the wavelet transform.
