Local Binary Patterns Descriptor Based on Sparse Curvelet Coefficients for False-Positive Reduction in Mammograms

Algorithm 1

Image fusion for contrast enhancement.
(1)Load input image (img1)
(2)Apply CLAHE algorithm and obtain enhanced image (img2)
(3)Decompose img1 and img2 up to 3 level of decomposition using Discrete Wavelet transform (DWT)
(4)Use maximum local entropy rule for fusion of img1 and img2 for high frequency subbands
(5)Take inverse DWT to obtain the fused image
