This paper proposes a hybrid system which combines computer extracted features and human interpreted features from the mammogram, with the statistical classifier's output as another kind of features in conjunction with a genetic neural network classifier. The hybrid system produced better results than the single statistical classifier and neural network. The highest classification rate reached 91.3%. The area value under the ROC curve is 0.962. The results indicated that the mixed features contribute greatly for the classification of mass patterns into benign and malignant.
