Tongue image analysis and its mobile app development for health diagnosis
Computer-aided diagnosis provides a medical procedure that assists physicians in interpretation of medical images. This work focuses on computer-aided tongue image analysis specifically, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Tongue diagnosis is an important component of TCM. Computerized tongue diagnosis can aid medical practitioners in capturing quantitative features to improve reliability and consistency of diagnosis. Recently, researchers have started to develop computer-aided tongue analysis algorithms based on new advancement in digital photogrammetry, image analysis, and pattern recognition technologies. In this chapter, we will describe our recent work on tongue image analysis as well as a mobile app that we developed based on this technology.
