Abstract

Filters for mammography based on anisotropic diffusion are introduced and evaluated with respect to well known filters adopted within this field. Results reported concern with images including microcalcifications. The performances of anisotropic filters are assessed both on the basis of figures of merit, allowing a preliminary quantitative enhancement evaluation, and according to goal-directed evaluation relying upon a simple segmentation module. Results indicate that proposed filters exhibit an effective and appealing behavior but they are subject to a more complex tuning, if compared to traditional filters.
