Product Description This book introduces the idea of how breast density can affect the performance of CAD systems for the detection of normal mammograms. Although most CAD systems are designed to help radiologists in diagnosing breast cancer, the accuracy of CAD systems remains below the level of large impact. In this book, the author designed a pre-CAD system that separates mammograms into two disjoint categories according to their radiology-defined breast tissue density (fatty or dense). The pre-CAD system is a "first look" that will screen-out normal mammograms, leaving radiologists and other conventional CAD systems to focus on the suspicious non-normal cases. The sensitivity was increased when dense and fatty mammograms were separated. Furthermore, a new set of features were introduced for each category of density. The performance of each feature set introduced performed the best for one category more than the other.

Circular We're told if the economy is growing, and if we keep producing, that's a good thing. But at what cost? This hour, TED speakers explore circular systems that regenerate and re-use what we already have. Guests include economist Kate Raworth, environmental activist Tristram Stuart, landscape architect Kate Orff, entrepreneur David Katz, and graphic designer Jessi Arrington.
#504 The Art of Logic How can mathematics help us have better arguments? This week we spend the hour with "The Art of Logic in an Illogical World" author, mathematician Eugenia Cheng, as she makes her case that the logic of mathematics can combine with emotional resonance to allow us to have better debates and arguments. Along the way we learn a lot about rigorous logic using arguments you're probably having every day, while also learning a lot about our own underlying beliefs and assumptions.
