Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) has proven to be a suitable complement to traditional text-based searching. CBIR applications rely on two main steps, namely the representation of the images, and the similarity measuring between two represented images. Although modern segmentation and learning algorithms enable the accurate representation of local and global features within an image, how to properly compare the segmented objects is still an open issue. In this study, we propose a new comparison method called Counting-Labels Similarity Measure (CL-Measure). Our approach calculates the similarity between two images by comparing the labeled regions within these images and by balancing the influence of each label according to its predominance in both non-metric and metric fashion. The experiments on a real dataset of dermatological ulcers show that CL-Measure achieves a higher Precision for all values of Recall compared to its competitors in retrieval tasks.
