Abstract

Presently, medical radiographs play an important role in detection of cancers, especially of those with high mortility rates, such as mammary, gastric, and lung cancers. Nevertheless, the important information required for diagnosis, contained in a medical radiograph, is often indistinct and sometimes hardly detectable for human eyes which seems to be one of the obstacles in finding a cancer in its early stage.
