his is a Matlab implementation of different tools for processing digital mammography images developed by Universidad Industrial de Santander. OpenBreast was publicly released in  and has been clinically evaluated for the task of breast cancer risk assessment in . The following tasks have been implemented:
* Feature extraction for parenchymal analysis 
* Image standardization for (RAW and PROCESSED) digital mammography images
* Breast segmentation and chest wall detection 
* Detection of regions on interest within the breast [4,5]
* Breast density segmentation 
To get started first run setup.m to configure Openbreast. Then run the following demos:
* demo01 Breast segmentation
* demo02 ST mapping
* demo03 ROI detection
* demo04 Feature extraction on FFDM images
* demo05 Breast density segmentation
