  • In recent years, it became common to record video footage of laparoscopic surgeries. This leads to large video archives that are very hard to manage. They often contain a considerable portion of completely irrelevant scenes which waste storage capacity and hamper an efficient retrieval of relevant scenes. In this paper we (1) define three classes of irrelevant segments, (2) propose visual feature extraction methods to obtain irrelevance indicators for each class and (3) present an extensible… CONTINUE READING
