In this chapter, we present, as an aid to medical diagnosis, an automated system based on biornetric pattern recognition technol- ogy, that performs the valuable diagnostic functions of the tongue diagnosis technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). De- tails of tongue image capturing and database design are discussed, followed by a description of the segmentation approach we have adopted for tongue images. The feature extraction methods used by us for tongue diagnosis, as well as the classification procedure for tongue images, are also highlighted.
