We proposed an expert system based on the interpretation of mammographic and ultrasound images that may be used by expert and non-expert doctors in the interpretation and classifying of patient cases. The expert system software consists of a mammographic(MAMMEX) and breast ultrasound(SOUNDEX) medical expert systems which may be used to deduce cases according to the Breast Imaging Recording and Data System (BI-RADS) based upon patients’ history, physical and clinical assessment as well as mammograms and breast ultrasound images. The systems were tested on a total of 179 retrospective cases from the Radiology Department, Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM), Kubang Kerian, Kelantan. The accuracy, sensitivity and specificity of MAMMEX were 97%, 96% and 92% and values of 99%, 98% and 100% were found for SOUNDEX respectively.
