Early detection of breast cancer is believed to be the best means to reduce mortality. Mammography is used intensively for breast cancer detection. As routine screening examination becomes more popular, tremendous amount of breast imaging data has been accumulated. To diagnose breast abnormalities effectively, radiologists expect convenient access to well-organized breast imaging related information. Most breast cancer related data, however, spread across different information systems and represented in incoherent format, making them hard to access on line.
