Content-Based Image and Video Retrieval (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
Oge Marques, Borko Furht
1402070047
April 30, 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The amount of audiovisual information available in digital format has grown exponentially in recent years. Gigabytes of new images, audio and video clips are generated and stored everyday. Most audiovisual content can be accessed through the Internet, which is a very large, unstructured, distributed information database. Searching and retrieving multimedia information from the Web has been limited to the use of keywords. Over the past decade, many researchers, mostly from the Image Processing and Computer Vision community, have started to investigate possible ways of retrieving visual information based solely on its contents. Instead of being manually annotated using keywords, images and video clips would be indexed by their own visual content, such as color, texture, objects' shape and movement, among others. Research...

CENTRALIA, Wash., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Providence Centralia Hospital is the first health care facility in Washington to use breast specific gamma imaging -- the most technologically advanced method of detecting breast cancer that's presently available.

Also known as BSGI, breast specific gamma imaging is a useful diagnostic technique when women have questionable mammograms. The method alleviates long, emotionally trying wait times involved in the diagnosis process. BSGI also can reduce the number of invasive biopsies.
