We establish a new set of features for differentiating benign from malignant breast lesions using ultrasound (US) images. Two types of features (sonographic and textural features) are considered. Among them, three sonographic features are novel. Sonograms of 321 pathologically proven breast cases are analyzed and classified into benign and malignant categories. The discrimination capability of the extracted features are evaluated using the support vector machines (SVM) in comparison with the results obtained from artificial neural networks (ANN) and K-nearest neighbor (KNN) classifier. The simulations demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can be an integral part to US computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems for breast cancer or an independent program to help accurately distinguish benign solid breast nodules from malignant nodules.
