A fully automatic method for breast cancer diagnosis based on microscopic biopsy images is presented. The method achieves high recognition rates by applying multi-class support vector machines on generic feature vectors that are based on level-set statistics of the images. We also consider the problem of classification with
rejection and show preliminary results that point to the potential benefits.
