This paper presents a novel methodology for the classification of suspicious areas in digital mammograms. The methodology is based on the fusion of clustered sub classes with various intelligent classifiers. A number of classifiers have been incorporated into the proposed methodology and evaluated on the well known benchmark digital database of screening mammography (DDSM). The results in the form of overall classification accuracies, TP, TN, FP and FN have been analyzed, compared and presented. The results of all four tested classifiers with clustered sub classes on the DDSM benchmark database show that the proposed methodology can significantly improve the accuracy and reduce the false positive rate.
