The reason behind is the fact that laparoscopic surgeries require specific psychomotor skills, which are difficult to learn and teach. The manual inspection of surgery video recordings is extremely cumbersome and time-consuming. Hence, there is a strong demand for automated video content analysis methods. In this work, we focus on retrieving surgical actions from video collections of gynecologic surgeries. We propose two novel dynamic content descriptors for similarity search and investigate a query-by-example approach to evaluate the descriptors on a manually annotated dataset consisting of 18 hours of video content. We compare several content descriptors including dynamic information of the segments as well as descriptors containing only spatial information of keyframes of the segments. The evaluation shows that our proposed dynamic content descriptors considering motion and spatial information from the segment achieve a better retrieval performance than static content descriptors ignoring temporal information of the segment at all. The proposed content descriptors in this work enable content-based video search for similar laparoscopic actions, which can be used to assist surgeons in evaluating laparoscopic surgical skills.}, doi = {10.1145/3132390.3132395}, keywords = {feature signatures, laparoscopic video, medical endoscopy, motion analysis, similarity search, video retrieval}, language = {EN}, location = {Mountain View, California, USA}, talkdate = {2017.10.27}, talktype = {registered}, url = {} }
