The present paper describes the design and usage of an Internet medical image search engine based on the queryby-example paradigm and the multimedia standard ISO-15938-12:2008. The system, which allows combining Content Based Information Retrieval (CBIR) techniques such as “query by image” with traditional XML metadata filtering, is applied to annotate and query Optical Biopsies-OB (in the present case Confocal endomicroscopy-CEM). The OB-CEM are taken by endoscopists, not trained in microscopic morphology which is the domain of the surgical pathology. To gain diagnostic confidence the endoscopists could consult the images to a pathologist or could use the system proposed in the paper. That is, to search for similar images to compare the diagnosis.
