When detecting abnormalities in colonoscopic images, the location, shape and size of the abnormal regions in the image are unknown and vary across images. It is difficult to determine the appropriate patch-size for patch-based approach. So multi-size patches are used simultaneously to represent the image regions and an ensemble is constructed in which each classifier handles one patch size. The combination of classifiers trained using multiple-size patches can recognize abnormal regions more

The classification of the image patches can be performed using a discriminative binary Support Vector Machine (SVM) or a recognition-based one-class SVM. Integration of the two types of SVMs is expected to further improve abnormal region detection. Experimental results show the good performance of our proposed ensemble.
