Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to propose a multimedia based texture recognition diagnostic system that has tremendous applications in telemedicine. The challenges of medical diagnostic errors get compounded in telemedicine. On the other hand, telemedicine offers opportunities with regard to exploiting vast databases of medical images and their retrieval. We design a multimedia system based on Grey Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) for automatically recognizing skin texture. Three dermatological conditions – acne, ichthyosis, and keratosis – are tested using this system. The results show that the GLCM technique is able to diagnose between the three disease conditions based on the skin texture images with an accuracy of 80%. Applications in the telemedicine context are discussed.
