Localized textural analysis of breast tissue on mammograms has recently gained considerable attention by researchers studying breast cancer detection. Despite the research progress to solve the problem, detecting breast cancer based on textural features has not been investigated in depth. In this paper we study the breast cancer detection based on statistical texture features using Support Vector Machine (SVM). A set of textural features was applied to a set of 120 digital mammographic images, from the Digital Database for Screening Mammography. These features are then used in conjunction with SVMs to detect the breast cancer. Other linear and non-linear classifiers were also employed to be compared to the SVM performance. SVM was able to achieve better classification accuracy of 82.5%.
