Paper Abstract

In the past few years, immense improvement was obtained in the field of content-based image retrieval. Nevertheless, existing systems still fail when applied to medical image databases. Simple feature-extraction algorithms that operate on the entire image for characterization of color, texture, or shape cannot be related to the descriptive semantics of medical knowledge that is extracted from images by human experts.
