Using a mild pressure stressing device and a pulsed ruby-laser system, we apply phase-shifted holographic interferometry to the detection of breast cancer. We compare a four-step algorithm and a Carré algorithm for their ability to evaluate the interferograms. The results show the feasibility of holographic interferometry in the detection of anomalies in the human female breast.
