In this work a comparison of different classification methods for the identification of mass lesions in digitized mammograms is performed. These methods, used in order to develop Computer Aided Detection (CAD) systems, have been implemented in the framework of the MAGIC-5 Collaboration. The system for identification of mass lesions is based on a three-step procedure: a) preprocessing and segmentation, b) region of interest (ROI) searching, c) feature extraction and classification. It was tested on a very large mammographic database (3369 mammographic images from 967 patients). Each ROI is characterized by eight features extracted from a co-occurrence matrix containing spatial statistics information on the ROI pixel grey tones.
