Detecting Abnormalities in Tympanic Membrane ImagesXianghua Xie, Majid Mirmehdi, Richard Maw, Amanda Hall, Detecting Abnormalities in Tympanic Membrane Images. Medical Image Understanding and Analysis, pp. 19–22. July 2005. No electronic version available.
We present a method to detect abnormalities in colour tympanic membrane (eardrum) images. The method first uses a geometric snake to localise the regions of interest and normalise the colour pixels based on a reference image. Then, defect detection and localisation in multiscale is performed using a statistical model. Initial experimental results (presented) suggest excellent potential for in-depth progress and validation.
