Abstract

This paper presents a method for breast density classifica- tion. Local ternary pattern operators are employed to model the ap- pearance of the fibroglandular disk region instead of the whole breast region as the majority of current studies have done. The Support Vector Machine classifier is used to perform the classification and a stratified ten-fold cross-validation scheme is employed to evaluate the performance of the method. The proposed method achieved 82.33% accuracy which is comparable with some of the best methods in the literature based on the same dataset and evaluation scheme.
