Description
Summary:Classification of breast cancer is essential in determining the type of treatment that should be applied. Thus, a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CADx) may assist radiologists in making appropriate decision based on the classification results. In this paper, the classification is divided into two categories; to classify the cancer into benign and malignant (two classes) and to classify the character of the background tissue either fatty, glandular or dense (multi class). The Haralick texture features and Hu Invariants moments were proposed as the features extraction. There are three phases conducted in this study. The first phase is the pre-processing phase. This is followed by the features extraction phase where combination of moment based features with addition of four features was proposed. The final phase is the classification phase by using SVM classifiers. Results obtained shows that the accuracy of the proposed features are 90.5% and 77.5% for two classes and multi class respectively.
