Abdominal bleeding region detection in wireless capsule endoscopy videos

Dr. Sreeja Mole, S.S.

Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCC) is a medical imaging technique used to examine parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Computer aided detection is used to increase the speed of detection, better performance and reduce the time. Before finding the bleeding regions the edge regions are first detected and removed. Both the edge and the bleeding regions will share the same Hue value and the luminance should be same for the bleeding and the non -bleeding regions .We use a canny edge detector operator for detecting the edge regions in L channel. Canny edge detector is used to detect more edge pixels and preserve more bleeding pixels based up on canny edge algorithm. This method in edge removal algorithm includes edge detection, edge dilation and edge masking. After the removal of edges, those regions are made in to segment through super-pixel segmentation and regions are classified using Artificial Neural Network by Radial Bias Function (RBF).
