Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


We present a method to detect abnormalities in colour tympanic membrane (eardrum) images. The method first uses a geometric snake to localise the regions of interest and normalise the colour pixels based on a reference image. Then, defect detection and localisation in multiscale is performed using a statistical model. Initial experimental results (presented) suggest excellent potential for in-depth progress and validation.
