Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer with the highest prevalence, incidence, and mortality rate for females in Indonesia and worldwide. Ultrasonography is a recommended modality for breast cancer, because it is comfortable, radiation free and it can be widely used. However, ultrasound images often occur in quality degradation caused by speckle noise that appears during image acquisition. It causes difficulty for radiologists or Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems to diagnose these images. Some techniques are proposed for reducing the speckle noise. This journal aims to compare the performance of 14 noise reduction techniques in breast ultrasound images. Quantitative testing was carried out on 58 breast ultrasound images and 3 artificial breast ultrasound image. The quantitative parameters are used include texture analysis (Mean, Variant, skewness, kurtosis, contrast and entropy) and evaluation of image quality (MSE, RMSE, SNR, SSIM, Structural content and Maximum Difference). The qualitative testing was also carried out with the assessment of 3 radiology specialists on 3 samples of each reduction technique. Based on test results, the 3 best performance filters are DsFsrad, DsFamedian dan DsFhmedian.
