Combining visual features and text data for medical image retrieval using latent semantic kernels

Juan C. Caicedo, Jose G. Moreno, Edwin A. Niño, Fabio A. González
2010 Proceedings of the international conference on Multimedia information retrieval - MIR '10  
In this paper we propose an strategy to fuse visual features and unstructured-text data in a medical image retrieval system.  ...  The main goal of this work is to investigate whether the semantic information from text descriptions can be transferred to a visual similarity measure.  ...  Both images and text bring complete meaning to the document and they are complementary information for the reader. Image retrieval systems can exploit text descriptions to search only using keywords.  ...
