Database for the storage and analysis of digital mammograms

In this project we propose a method for the storage and analysis of digital mammograms, the method is implemented by means of a two-phase algorithm; The first phase is the segmentation of images where characteristic patterns of cancer are obtained and the second phase these patterns are classified for diagnosis using BI-RADS protocol. The method is implemented as an extension to the database manager system with new data types and functions for each phase of the algorithm. In addition, the conceptual and detailed design of a mammography database for clinics and hospitals at the national level and its respective analysis interface is proposed.
