Microcalcifications are early signs of breast cancer which emerge as minute vivid marks in the images of mammogram. As these mammogram images are small in size and shape, they are complicated to get detected. Morphological Band pass Filter (MBF) is proposed in this research work to detect microcalcifications. Morphological band pass filter is implemented by applying 
morphological operations with structure elements of different shapes and sizes. Multiple MBFs are modulated in succession for detection task. Finally, the output binary image contains the detected microcalcifications. The proposed method yields high percentage of accuracy in locating and detecting the microcalcifications.
