Abstract
The object-oriented knowledge representation is considered as a natural and effective approach. Nevertheless, the use of object-oriented within complex image analysis has not undergone a rapid growth as it happened in other fields. We argue that one of the major problems comes from the difficulty of conceiving a comprehensive framework for coping with the different abstraction levels and the vision task operations. With the goal to overcome such a drawback, we present a new knowledge model for medical image content analysis based on the object-oriented paradigm. The new model abstracts common model for medical image content analysis based on the object-oriented paradigm. The new model abstracts common properties from different types of medical images by using three attribute parts: description, component, and semantic graph, and also specifies its actions to schedule the detection procedure, properly deform the shape of model components to match the corresponding anatomies in images, select the best match candidates, and verify combination graphs from detected candidates with the semantic graph defined in the model. The performance of the proposed model has been tested on pelvis digital radiographs. Initial results are encouraging.
