This thesis explores the current deep learning (DL) approaches to computer aided diagnosis (CAD) of digital mammographic images and presents two novel designs for overcoming current obstacles endemic to the field, using convolutional neural networks (CNNs). The first method employed utilizes Bayesian statistics to perform decision level fusion from multiple images of an individual. The second method utilizes a new data pre-processing scheme to artificially expand the limited available training data and reduce model overitting.
