The paper presents a first implementation of a novel tool to assist radiologists in analyzing screening mammographic images. The software named Assisted Breast Cancer Diagnosis Environment (ABCDE) is able to acquire DICOM images (also in presence of Grayscale Softcopy Presentation State). It is designed to assist the doctor, as a second reader, during the various phases of the diagnosis. The program uses some public libraries and implements many new algorithms developed in the last years by the research group.
