Content-Based Retrieval of Pathological Prostate Images

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this paper, we develop a content-based image retrieval (CBIR) system for histological prostate cancer. In our system, a physician can find prostate images of similar cancer grade from archive by example in terms of visual similarity of different Gleason grading. The Gleason grading system is the widespread method for histological grading of prostate cancer. Two feature extraction methods based on fractal dimension are proposed to analyze variations of intensity and texture complexity in regions of interest. Our experiments are based on a database consisting of 205 prostate pathological images. The performance of retrieval system is evaluated using precision-recall curves.
