Micro calcification in mammograms may be considered early signs of breast cancer. However, their detection by a variety of factors is a very challenging task to find cancer in an instant starting stage. A breast compression, more difficult breast anatomy, and in some cases, inaccessible size calculations, as well as the significant variation of low contrast, inherent to mammograms. Therefore a computerized image processing scheme is implemented for detecting early-stage Microcalcification in mam...

The application of data science in cancer research has been boosted by major advances in three primary areas: 1) Data: diversity, amount, and availability of biomedical data; 2) Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms that enable learning from complex, large-scale data; and 3) Advances in computer architectures allowing unprecedented acceleration of simulation and machine learning algorithms. These advances help build in silico ML models that can provide tra...
