Abstract
A content?ased 3D neuroradiologic image retrieval system is being developed at the Robotics Institute of CMU. The special characteristics of this system include: 1) directly dealing with multimodal 3D images (MR/CT); 2) image similarity based on anatomical structures of the human brain; 3) combining both visual and collateral information for indexing and retrieval. A testbed has been implemented for using detected salient visual features for indexing and retrieving 3D images.
