  abstract =     "We present an automated, end-to-end approach for
                 Stage~1 breast cancer detection. The first phase of our
                 proposed work-flow takes individual digital mammograms
                 as input and outputs several smaller sub-images from
                 which the background has been removed. Next, we extract
                 a set of features which capture textural information
                 from the segmented images.

                 In the final phase, the most salient of these features
                 are fed into a Multi-Objective Genetic Programming
                 system which then evolves classifiers capable of
                 identifying those segments which may have suspicious
                 areas that require further investigation.

                 A key aspect of this work is the examination of several
                 new experimental configurations which focus on textural
                 asymmetry between breasts. The best evolved classifier
                 using such a configuration can deliver results of
                 100percent accuracy on true positives and a false
                 positive per image rating of just 0.33, which is better
                 than the current state of the art.",
