In this paper, we propose a model for symbolic representation and classification of medical X-ray body organ images. Medical X-ray body organ images are segmented using graph cut segmentation method. Based on the boundary of a segmented body organ image, the skeleton endpoints are localized. A complete directed graph is then constructed over the skeleton endpoints. Subsequently, distance and orientation features are extracted from the constructed graph. Further, shape features based on skeleton endpoints are also extracted. The obtained features are used to form an interval valued feature vector. Finally, a symbolic classifier is explored to classify medical X-ray body organ images. Our proposed model is simple and efficient.
