Abstract

Breast density segmentation and classification methods are combined to enable the automatic and quantitative comparison of temporal mammograms of women using Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). The results are based on registration and density quantification, so that potentially the clinician may be informed about substantial localised breast density changes. The measures use texture based density segmentation as well as a normalized representation of mammograms.
