Xray image processing is a computerized system which enhances the amount of detail visible on a digitalized x-ray image. The effect of this technique in the diagnoses of breast cancer, where the detection of early malignant tumors is essential for effective treatment, is reviewed in this study. The mammograms, as normally viewed, display a small percentage of the information they detect and that is due to the minor difference in x-ray attenuation between normal glandular tissues and malignant disease. This makes the detection of small malignancies difficult. The digital medical image processing uses denoising and image enhancement techniques so as to reveal any tumors that may not be obvious and help the oncologist decide. The idea is to transform the data into the wavelet basis, in which the large coefficients are mainly the signal and the smaller ones represent the noise. By suitably modifying these coefficients, the noise can be removed from the data. In this study we employ wavelet method of image enhancement and the conclusion would be satisfied.
