Description:C program for conversion from LJPEG to RAW
Abstract:The Digital Database for Screening Mammography (DDSM) is a resource for use by the mammographic image analysis research community. Primary support for this project was a grant from the Breast Cancer Research Program of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. The database contains approximately 2,500 studies. Each study includes two LJPEG (lossless compression) images, of each breast, along with some associated patient information and image information.
In order to make these images used by a CAD (Computer Aided Detection) system, it was necessary to implement shell script and python for:
<br>converting images from LJPEG format to RAW format.
<br>creating files for the performance analysis support, containing patient and image information (spatial resolution, geometry of abnormalities, and so)
<br>The RAW images have been used for the construction of a distributed database to be used for the classification system training. In order to optimize parameter choice, we are currently running a CAD performance analysis script. For fastening its run, the script is implemented as a sequence of batch jobs managed by a GRID resource broker
