Abstract:

This ongoing training program consists of three components, namely start up, training and research development stages. In the first year of this program, our main effort has been in providing facilities and students with series of lectures in breast imaging, coordination and digitization of mammograms aiming to establish and African-American women mammogram database, and design of a research mammographic workstation. Under this partnership arrangement, one Ph.D. student is working on separation of benign and malignant masses on mammograms. Five faculty members and four graduate students participated in the lecture series. Five undergraduate students also attended the lecture series and worked with three faculty members to collect cases for the establishment of a breast imaging library and network system at Howard University.
