The detection of suspicious microcalcifications on mammography is usually considered as a primary indication of an early breast cancer. Assessing microcalcifications’ characteristics based on their appearance on 2D mammography is in many cases challenging for radiologists. The aims of this study were to: (a) analyse the association of shape and texture properties of breast microcalcifications (extracted by scanning breast tissue with a high-resolution 3D scanner) with malignancy, (b) evaluate microcalcifications’ potential to diagnose benign/malignant patients.
