Paper Abstract

In this paper, we develop an indexing scheme for medical images. In general, for a given medical image, there are objects which are clinically important amongst the rest. We name the objects as the dominant objects. Our proposed index is composed of three parts: (1) dominant objects in images are located; (2) each image will have an associated R-tree which is constructed by its dominant objects; and (3) an R-tree that clusters similar images together. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the index developed, we use images of skin lesions as the image data. Our initial experiments give promising results for image retrieval.
