  abstract  = {This paper presents a dominant color descriptor
technique for medical image retrieval. The medical image system
will collect and store into medical database. The purpose of
dominant color descriptor (DCD) technique is to retrieve medical
image and to display similar image using queried image. First, this
technique will search and retrieve medical image based on keyword
entered by user. After image is found, the system will assign this
image as a queried image. DCD technique will calculate the image
value of dominant color. Then, system will search and retrieve again
medical image based on value of dominant color query image.
Finally, the system will display similar images with the queried
image to user. Simple application has been developed and tested
using dominant color descriptor. Result based on experiment
indicates this technique is effective and can be used for medical
image retrieval.},
