Detect film-screen “shot” noise which can be confused with calcifications, and thus is a major source of the false positives that downgrade the performance of algorithms for detecting microcalcifications;
Estimate the thickness of calcifications, further contributing to the quantitative information that can be provided to the clinician;
Improve the detection of calcifications by removing the effects of variations in the background and imaging parameters.
