Table 1 Higuchi's fractal dimension of the signatures of benign masses and of malignant breast tumors calculated either from the whole signature at once ('Global'), or calculated in moving window shifted in each step one element of a signature (Figure 6. c. and d.) to the right (100-elements window, kmax= 4) respectively, so giving the graphs shown in Figure 6. e. and f., and only then averaged ('Window')
