Discriminative Subtree Selection for NBI Endoscopic Image Labeling

Abstract : In this paper, we propose a novel method for image labeling of colorectal Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) endoscopic images based on a tree of shapes. Labeling results could be obtained by simply classifying histogram features of all nodes in a tree of shapes, however, satisfactory results are difficult to obtain because histogram features of small nodes are not enough discriminative. To obtain discriminative subtrees, we propose a method that optimally selects discriminative subtrees. We model an objective function that includes the parameters of a classifier and a threshold to select subtrees. Then labeling is done by mapping the classification results of nodes of the subtrees to those corresponding image regions. Experimental results on a dataset of 63 NBI endoscopic images show that the proposed method performs qualitatively and quantitatively much better than existing methods.
