Statistical profiles are also found only at the BancoWeb database, allowing a fast evaluation of content by use of graphics. Mammogrwphy RM, et al: Substantial differences may also exist within the population of women with disabilities.

The overlay is composed by the coordinates of the region border of each detected structure. Breast and cervical cancer have had disparate impact on the lives of women. At this time, the database registers around users.

Online Mammographic Images Database for Development and Comparison of CAD Schemes

National Center for Infectious Diseases U. Comparison with other databases currently available has shown that the presented database has a sufficient number of images, is of high quality, and is the only one to include fioetype functional search system.

The default format chosen for the images was TIFF file, based on the amount of available tools for this format as well as due to its versatility, including mammogrwphy possibility of several different contrast levels. Bruno Roberto Nepomuceno Matheus Depto.

Currently, images available in our database are originated from two hospitals with two different types of mammography units a Senographe t and a Senographe t. Morbidity and mortality weekly report ; v. Thus, our database described here was developed to supply those characteristics, since its access is free and the images set is well representative of the mammography results usually found in the practice.


Images without suspect findings of clinical interest are also important in CAD schemes evaluation because they can be used for evaluating false-positive rates. Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. Data and image recovery is done by using a set of four modules, each one associated to another set of data: When dealing with DICOM 1 standard, the information is partitioned and inserted in the database using the normal registration described above.

The database also contains images corresponding to normal cases, that is, without any findings indicated on the reports. Using the data structure presented on the medical reports, the image origin data and the necessary information for a CAD like mammkgraphy of file, contrast and spatial resolution, and equipment useda redundancy-free relational model was built. In this case, anything in the image that the radiologist considered important enough to note in the medical report will be called findings, including benign calcifications, radio-opaque nodules, metallic artifacts, and others.

So far, the best method for early detection and diagnosis of this disease is the mammographic exam. Obtaining and selecting those images can be quite a challenge to the developer of CAD schemes.

DICOM Library – About DICOM available modality

At the moment, the only database with a fully functional and broad search system is the BancoWeb, mammography we are presenting here. The evaluation was performed considering the most recent publication of each database and their current tools available for all possible users. Comparisons with other databases have shown that the BancoWeb database is the only one having a functional search system.

This assures the database mammographt since only a few highly qualified experts can insert new cases. This act authorized the Centers for Disease Control and Preventi Some papers have shown the existence of several public or private databases already in use by developers 10 — 13 ; however, none of them seems to meet the requirements above.


The database proposed in this work is structured such as to allow free access by researchers and developers, requiring only online registration and offering them a broad search system and tools for selection of regions of interest and statistical profile. Digital Imaging Communications in Medicine is composed mammogrxphy a set of images usually in TIFF format and additional information from the exam and apparatus used during image acquisition.

The database still requires a greater variety of images of different spatial and contrast resolutions and the insertion of FFDM images to allow tests with other formats.

Digital mammography, Elsevier Science Publishers B. Dash Indicates Unavailable Information. These and other characteristics frequently vary between databases, making it difficult to compare CAD schemes from different sources. mmmography

These are the images that should be used to test processing techniques. Increasing population-based breast and cervical cancer screenings: Finally, the proposed database is the only one that can allow remote upload of files.

Those images were digitized by using two laser scanners—Lumiscan 50 and Lumiscan 75, Lumisys, Inc.

Online Mammographic Images Database for Development and Comparison of CAD Schemes

Exercise-related injuries among women: In future developments, the database will allow the user to download the image set of an exam directly in DICOM format. It mammoography important though to remember that the MIAS database was published inmaking it the oldest database among those under comparison here, and very little updates were provided since then.

Nishikawa RM, et al: This button gives access to a region selection tool, which allows one to mark visually any square region of the image.
