Abstract

Treatment of pressure ulcers (PU) is essentially image dependent, because its surface provides relevant visual information for medical procedures. There is an increasing interest to adapt Information Technology advances for a more effective medical image processing. Artificial Intelligence concerned techniques, say Image Mining, can be very helpful to manage large amount of PU images in order to increase productivity of health professionals and patients life quality. This paper proposes an Image Mining based system for automatic interpretation of tissue and color to support the treatment of patients with PU.
