A novel method to obtain correspondence between landmarks when comparing pairs of mammographic images from the same patient is presented. Our approach is based on automatically established correspondence between linear structures (i.e. ducts and vessels) which appear in mammograms using robust features such as orientation, width and curvature extracted from those structures. In addition, a novel multiscale feature matching approach is presented which results in a reliable correspondence between extracted features.
