Paper Abstract

We describe a method to automatically detect which kind of x-ray a given image is. Based on a feature space which represents the textural information of the image, using second order statistics, a synergetic classifier is used. The synergetic classifier is especially studied for high dimensional feature spaces and has the advantage of nearly automatic parameterization. Within a test suite consisting of numerous example images the practicability of the method is demonstrated.
