The retrieval of similar medical images from a database of digital images with a known symptom outcome can be very useful for a better assessment of disease and treatment. In highresolution ultrasound imaging of atherosclerotic carotid plaques the extraction of features characterizing the plaque morphology and structure can be used for the retrieval of similar plaques and the identification of individuals with asymptomatic carotid stenosis at risk of stroke. In this work a content-based image
