Previous research on the automated processing on thermal medical images have typically focused on specialised applications like the detection of breast cancer. We propose the application of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) to medical infrared images. CBIR allows the retrieval of similar images based on features extracted directly from image data. Hence, image retrieval for a thermal image that shows symptoms of a certain disease will provide visually similar cases which will usually represent medically relevant cases. The image features we propose for this purpose are a set of complex moment invariants of the thermal images.
