Abstract

Image retrieval has great potential for a variety of tasks in medicine but is currently underdeveloped. For the ImageCLEF 2005 medical task, we developed a context-based retrieval system. We then conducted our experiment using an automatic query, a manual query, and a manual/visual query. The best results were obtained from manual modification of queries, while combining those results with data from content-based image retrieval had a detrimental effect.
