Abstract: A way to practice Telemedicine is to access a data-base capable to assist you in medical procedures (diagnosis, treatment and prognosis), similarly to consult a book or to ask a college. In many countries the lack of specialists and training capabilities demand to practice solo-medicine, that in the case of surgery require robots capable to induce anesthesia or help in vision or handling instruments. A relevant case is the diagnostic self-training requirements for optical biopsies (OBs) obtained with confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) or the assistance in the diagnosis of pathology slides. In both cases it is required a training set of digital images against which to compare the question case by means of image-queryformat. The present paper present a content-based image retrieval system (CBIR) based on the MPEG Query Format Standard in order to provide a set of similar pictures and the corresponding diagnosis to help on diagnosis or just to train the doctor. The paper defined the Im age Solo-Medicine Paradigm (ISMP) architecture merging medical image standards and MPEG and JPEG standards. It tested the solution with normal, and benign colon OBs with 90% congruency. The ISMP is of particular interest viewed the proliferation of iPhone medical applications aiming to train doctors and support medical decisions. (More)
