Past efforts on the automated processing on medical infrared images has typically focused on specialized applications like the detection of breast cancer. We propose the application of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) to medical thermal images. CBIR allows the retrieval of similar images based on features directly extracted from the image data. Hence, image retrieval for a thermal image that shows symptoms of a certain disease will provide visually similar cases which will usually also represent similarities in medical terms. The image features we propose for this purpose are a set of moment invariants of the grayscale thermal images.
