Comparison of BI-RADS Lesion Descriptors and Computer-Extracted Image Features for Automated Classification of Malignant and Benign Breast Lesions
We compared Breast Imaging Report and Data System (BI-RADS) lesion descriptors provided by radiologists and image features extracted by a computer for computer classification of breast lesions as malignant or benign. Our results indicate that combining the BI-RADS lesion descriptors provided by radiologists and the computer-extracted image features produced the best computer classification performance.
