Abstract:

The present invention provides a method utilizing a wavelet transform for improving and optimizing the visual display of image data at the time of viewing to provide enhanced information analysis capability for image analysis such as breast cancer screening and diagnosis. Through the use of an interactive software tool, the user displays both unprocessed and processed images simultaneously. The method also allows additional enhancement iterations resulting in better image reading and interpretation. In the case of digital mammography images, this technique allows suppression of background details and enhancement of selected features allowing additional diagnostic capability.
