Over the last decade, wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) technology has become a very useful tool for diagnosing diseases within the human digestive tract. Physicians using WCE can examine the digestive tract in a minimally invasive way searching for pathological abnormalities such as bleeding, polyps, ulcers, and Crohn's disease. To improve effectiveness of WCE, researchers have developed software methods to automatically detect these diseases at a high rate of success. This paper proposes a novel synergistic methodology for automatically discovering polyps (protrusions) and perforated ulcers in WCE video frames. Finally, results of the methodology are given and statistical comparisons are also presented relevant to other works.
