ABSTRACT
Current content-based image retrieval techniques can typically per-
form efficient and effective searches on heterogeneous image data-
bases. This contribution deals with an approach based on the inte-
gration of color and texture description which is applied to a very
homogeneous database: a blood image bank. The content of images
is very similar and therefore it becomes imperative to use very pre-
cise descriptors: the color is described by classical color distribu-
tions (histograms) and for the texture, we introduce the morpholog-
ical color size distributions. The similarity is measured by comput-
ing distance metrics between histograms. In order to increase the
accuracy of retrieval, the results of color-based and texture-based
retrieval are integrated by combining the associated dissimilarity
values. The effects of different integration methods on classifica-
