The use of multiscale AM-FM analysis systems has been recently demonstrated in a variety of applications in medical image analysis. In all of these applications, a fixed filter-bank is used as a preprocessing step for estimating different AM-FM components from different scales. In this paper, for the first time, we introduce the use of an adaptive, multiscale AM-FM approach that searches for the optimal filter-bank specification for use in image classification. We demonstrate an example application in hysteroscopy imaging, for identification of gynaecological cancer, where the optimal filter-bank turns out to be circularly symmetric.
