In mammograms, a cluster of micro calcifications shows an early sign of breast cancer. An accurate and efficient classification scheme is needed for detection of tumour in mammograms. A Computer-Aided-Detection (CAD) system for automatic detection of tumour of micro calcification clusters on mammograms is discussed in this paper. The approach is very helpful for radiologist to diagnose the tumour and performs faster than typical screening programs. The images are collected from the Mammographic Image Analysis Society (MIAS) databases for implementation. The feature is extracted by Local Binary Pattern and classified using ANN. The proposed scheme provides high accuracy in classification of micro calcifications.
