Description We present an efficient image categorization and retrieval sys-tem applied to medical image databases, in particular large radiograph archives. The methodology presented is based on local patch representation of the image content and a bag-of-features approach for defining image categories, with a kernel based SVM classifier. In a recent international competition the system was ranked as one of the top schemes in discrim-inating orientation and body regions in x-ray images, and in medical visual retrieval. A detailed description of the method (not previously published) is presented, along with its most recent results. In addition to organ-level discrimination, we show initial results of pathology-level categorization of chest x-ray data. On a set of 102 chest radiographs taken from rou-tine hospital examination, the system detects pathology with sensitivity of 94 % and specificity of 91%. We view this as a first step towards similarity-based categorization with clinical importance in computer-assisted diagnostics. 1.
