Abstract

Oregon Health & Science University participated in the medical retrieval and medical annotation tasks of ImageCLEF 2007. In the medical retrieval task, we created a webbased retrieval system for the collection built on a full-text index of both image and case annotations. The text-based search engine was implemented in Ruby using Ferret, a port of Lucene, and a custom query parser. In addition to this textual index of annotations, supervised machine learning techniques using visual features were used to classify the images based on image acquisition modality. All images were annotated with the purported modality. Purely textual runs as well as mixed runs using the purported modality were submitted. Our runs performed moderately well using the MAP metric and better for the early precision (P10) metric. In the automatic annotation task, we used the 'gist' technique to create the feature vectors. Using statistics derived from a set of multi-scale oriented filters, we created a 512 dimensional vector. PCA was then used to create a 100-dimensional vector. This feature vector was fed into a two layer neural network. Our error rate on the 1000 test images was 67.8 using the hierarchical error calculations.
