Medical Image Indexing and Retrieval Using Multiple Features

Abstract Automatic medical image classification refers to assigning an medical image into a class, among a number of image categories. Due to computational complexity, it is an important task in the content based image retrieval (CBIR). In this paper, we propose a method for classification and retrieval of medical images using multi-feature extraction method. Here, edge and patch based methods are used to extract feature vectors. We demonstrate that these features provide discriminative information useful for classification ...
