Abstract:

If detected early, breast cancer can be treated with better patient outcomes and significantly lower costs. From recent 1998 retrospective breast cancer studies, in approximately half of missed cases, a minimal sign was already visible on a prior mammogram. Using information technology such as spatial dendrograms stealth-related technology and repartment hierarchical identification successive information peeling, difficult cases of spiculated and a stellate tumors can be identified. The techniques are robust to noise and can reveal various layers of biophysical and biomedical differences in a tumor.
