We describe our recent progress aimed at computer analysis of mammograms. The overall aim is to provide the clinician with reliable quantitative information. We summarise a representation we have developed of the 'interesting' (non-adipose) tissue in a breast, then put the representation to work in three ways: (i) to propose a new quantitative measure to aid in diagnosing masses; (ii) to explore the possibility of reducing by half the radiation dose required for a mammogram; and (iii) recalling some of the results that can be provided by differential compression mammography, in which mammograms are taken at two slightly different compressions.
