Content Based MRI Brain Image Retrieval - A Retrospective
Amitkumar Rohit ,  Dr. Nehal Chitaliya
With advance in technology, everyday large amount of different type of medical images such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computer tomography), ultrasound image, X- ray etc. are produced in different medical center. These medical images represent the symptoms of a specific disease, so collections of these images are the useful source for physicians as well as researchers. Due to the large collection of these images, a system is needed that can efficiently retrieve images that represent the specific disease for diagnostic purpose. Content Based Image Retrieval is a method for retrieving the most similar images from the large database using visual query. Content based medical image retrieval help the physician to make the clinical decision as well as manage the large database of these images. This paper tries to explain the concept of image retrieval, its type and various methods of content based image retrieval.
