ABSTRACT
Medical image segmentation is a processing step for image understanding and computer aided diagnosis. In this paper, we propose medical image texture segmentation using Gabor filter. Image enhancement techniques are utilized to remove strong speckle noise as well to enhance the weak boundaries of medical images. We propose to exploit the concept of Gabor filtering to extract the texture content of medical images. Experiment is conducted on ImageCLEF2010 database. Results show the efficacy of our proposed medical image segmentation
