The technique of support vector machines (SVM's) has been used as a new method for solving classification, regression, time series prediction and function estimation problems with many successful applications. In this paper, we use SVM to solve the problem of classification for ultrasonic medicine image. We use statistical characteristics of the interesting part in an ultrasonic image to aid a doctor to give a correct diagnosis. The procedure is: first, to extract a number of small sampling regions in the interesting part; second, to calculate a series of moments about those sampling regions; third, to decide whether the interesting part of the organ is normal or abnormal according to the analyses of the series of moments based on SVM. SVM's structural risk minimization principle is the guarantee that the diagnosis has the minimum mistake probability. The diagnosis based on SVM is optimal from the viewpoint of structural risk minimization principle. It is hoped that the results presented here will be helpful to the diagnosis based on ultrasonic medicine image.
