The implementation of a database of digitised mammograms is discussed. The digitised images were collected beginning in 1999 by a community of physicists in collaboration with radiologists in several Italian hospitals as a first step in developing and implementing a computer-aided detection (CAD) system. All 3,369 mammograms were collected from 967 patients and classified according to lesion type and morphology, breast tissue and pathology type. A dedicated graphical user interface was developed to visualise and process mammograms to support the medical diagnosis directly on a high-resolution screen. The database has been the starting point for developing other medical imaging applications, such as a breast CAD, currently being upgraded and optimised for use in a distributed environment with grid services, in the framework of the Instituto Nazionale di Fisicia Nucleare (INFN)-funded Medical Applications on a Grid Infrastructure Connection (MAGIC)-5 project.
