Abstract
This paper describes a simple method for retrieving images from image databases by a similarity retrieval scheme. With wavelets feature vectors are defined, which `measure the presence' of structures of variable size and orientation; moreover corresponding feature vectors providing a multiresolution analysis of object contours are developed. The significance of these feature vectors for classifying images as `similar' is verified on a set of medical MR- images. Based on these experiments a scheme for retrieving MR-images from databases can be defined and typical retrieval results are reported.
