Abstract : The Digital Database for Screening Mammography (DDSM) is an infrastructure resource for the mammographic image analysis research community. The purpose of the DDSM is to make it possible for researchers to rigorously compare the performance of different image analysis techniques. An initial volume of DDSM has been made publicly available. A volume corresponds to an amount of data that would fit on one exabyte tape for purposes of transfer through the mail. This volume contains approximately 120 normal cases. Over 30 distinct sites around the world have already accessed (portions of) this data over the internet. In addition to the image data, a software utility for viewing the images has been made available.
