Medical video repositories play important roles for many health-related issues such as medical imaging, medical research and education, medical diagnostics and training of medical professionals. Due to the increasing availability of the digital video data, indexing, annotating and the retrieval of the information are crucial. Since performing these processes are both computationally expensive and time consuming, automated systems are needed. In this paper, we present a medical video

The aim of this research is to provide an online tool for indexing, browsing and retrieving the neurosurgical videotapes. This tool will allow people to retrieve the specific information in a long video tape they are interested in instead of looking through the entire content.
