The object of this study was to assess the similarities and differences of radiomics features on full field digital mammography (FFDM) in FOR PROCESSING and FOR PRESENTATION data. The authors aimed to address the problem using an enlarged set of texture radiomic features, dense/non-dense areas comparison and a new manufacturer, concluding that texture features from FOR PROCESSING mammograms were the most suitable for assessing breast density.
- Segmentation from FOR PROCESSING and FOR PRESENTATION gave very different results.
- Bilateral symmetry was higher when evaluated on features computed using FOR PROCESSING images.
- Texture features from FOR PROCESSING mammograms seem to be most suitable for assessing breast density.
