Abstract

The article presents a solution for raising the quality of the content-based image query process, namely of the number of the relevant images retrieved from the database for a query image, in the case of the color medical images. The solution combines the content-based image query on color feature with color texture feature. There have been effectuated and presented studies of content-based image query on color images from the field of the digestive apparatus gathered with an endoscope. The color information is represented by the color histograms computed on HSV color space quantized at 166 colors. In order to represent the color texture the co-occurrence matrices are used. To compute the dissimilitude between the images, the histogram intersection has used for the color and the Euclidian distance for the color texture. The union of the results obtained with the two content-based image query methods on color and color texture, performed in parallel, leads to a greater number of retrieved relevant images. The reason is, that, generally, in the case of the considered diseases there are changes in the color and the texture of the sick tissue.
