KDD Cup 2008: Breast cancer

The KDD Cup 2008 challenge focuses on the problem of early detection of breast cancer from X-ray images of the breast. In a screening population, a small fraction of cancerous patients have more than one malignant lesion. To simplify the problem, we only consider one type of cancer - cancerous masses - and only include cancer patients with at most one cancerous mass per patient. The challenge will consist of two parts, each of which is related to the development of algorithms for Computer Aided Detection (CAD) of early stage breast cancer from X-ray images.
