Abstract This paper is concerned with an automated analysis of laryngeal images aiming to categorize the images into three decision classes, namely healthy, nodular, and diffuse. The problem is treated as an image analysis and classification task. Aiming to obtain a comprehensive description of laryngeal images, multiple feature sets exploiting information on image colour, texture, geometry, image intensity gradient direction, and frequency content are extracted. A separate support vector machine (SVM) is used to categorize features of each type into the decision classes. The final image categorization is then obtained based on the decisions provided by a committee of support vector machines. Bearing in mind a high similarity of the decision classes, the correct classification rate of over 94% obtained when testing the system on 785 laryngeal images recorded at the Department of Otolaryngology, Kaunas University of Medicine is rather promising.
