Medical images constitute a core portion of the information a physician utilizes to render diagnostic and treatment decisions. This diagnostic process involves two basic processes: visually inspecting the image (visual perception) and rendering an interpretation (cognition). The likelihood of error in the interpretation of medical images is, unfortunately, not negligible. Errors do occur, and patients’ lives are impacted. Symptoms like microcalcifications, is often overlooked by the examining radiologist due to their small size and the surrounding dense tissues. With improved understanding, we can develop ways to further improve decision making and, thus, to improve patient care. Enhanced mammogram can be a solution to this problem. This book should be of interest to readers in the areas of medical imaging, and is significant because it can reduces the mortality from breast cancer by providing visible symptoms to the radiologist at an early stage through the enhanced digitized mammogram, where mammographic features are more noticeable because of applying appropriate enhancement technique.
