Recent advances in miniaturization led to the development of what is now called the endoscopic capsule. This small device is swallowed by a patient and films the whole gastrointestinal tract, allowing the detection of abnormalities. Currently, a doctor typically needs up to two hours to analyze a full exam, so automation is desirable. This paper presents a methodology for measuring the potential of selected visual MPEG-7 descriptors for the task of specific medical event detection such as blood, ulcers. Experiments show that the best results are obtained by the Scalable Color and Homogenous Texture descriptors, especially if only relevant coefficients are used.
