This paper presents a global and local texture features combination as the description of medical images. The approaches use the block based Local Binary Pattern (LBP) texture histogram and MPEG-7 edge histogram together as the medical image description. The block histograms and the whole image texture histograms are accumulated to generate the image feature vector. Then, One-against-One SVM is adopted for automatic medical image annotation task in ImageCLEFmed2007. The experiments show that Local Binary Pattern texture and Edge Histogram are powerful for automatic medical image annotation. Copyright © 2008 IEEE.
