Content-based image retrieval has been an active area of research for more than ten years. Gabor schemes and support vector machine (SVM) method have been proven effective in image representation and classification. In this paper, we propose a retrieval scheme based on Gabor filters and SVMs for hepatic computed tomography (CT) images query. In our experiments, a batch of hepatic CT images containing several types of CT findings are used for the retrieval test. Precision comparison between our scheme and existing methods is presented.
