Abstract: A method for automatic classification of computed tomography (CT) brain images of different head trauma types is presented in this paper. The method has three major steps: 1. The images are first segmented to find potential hemorrhage regions using ellipse fitting, background removal and wavelet decomposition technique; 2. For each region, features (such as area, major axis length, etc.) are extracted; 3. Each extracted feature is classified using machine learning algorithm; the images are then classified based on its component regions' classification. The automatic medical image classification will be useful in building a content-based medical image retrieval system. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
