Breast cancer is the most invasive cancer in women and second leading cause of mortality in women. Advances in detection and treatment have improved survival rates dramatically in patients. Now-a-days mammographic image based analysis is widely used to predict the breast cancer. The diagnosis is simple and survivals of the patient are high if the breast cancer is predicted at the early stage accurately. This paper heavily focuses on methodologies which provides accurate detection of cancerous tissues and thereby reduces the death rates. The algorithms are non-subsampled Shearlet transform (NSST) for image preprocessing, Adaptive clustering for image segmentation and finally adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for image classification. NSST is an extension of wavelet transform in multidimensional and multidirectional case wherein the components are processed with the help of thresholding scheme. Adaptive clustering algorithm separates the pixels in the image into clusters based on both their intensity and sensitivity and thereby makes the segmentation much simpler and easier. ANFIS algorithm is the classifier which is a combination of both neural network adaptive capabilities and the fuzzy logic qualitative approach which is used to classify the normal and abnormal image accurately. The robustness of the proposed methodology is examined using classification accuracy, sensitivity and specificity.
