Mammography is radiological technique alone, which is used to image breast tissues as it was known for the past two decades till 1966,  meaningful solutions to reduce the pain making diagnosis and also suggested effective methods to detect breast carcinoma at the earliest possible time. Mammography is the leading method for breast imaging today. Here we will be arriving a methodology by taking two plain film (x-ray) mammography at an angle 45º / 90º between two and collect the details in digital form in a computer for segmentation and reconstruction. The application of Pseudocolouring with the help of Photoshop colour policies will use to separate the carcinoma and to apply various colours for the calcifications in gray scale for better perception and understanding, and improve the diagnostic quality. Because any human eye can easily differentiate the colours, the shape size and location of the occult carcinoma must easily detect. Also the 3D mammographic breast imaging techniques with the help of Pseudocolouring have potentials for both early cancer detection and diagnosis.
