    The paper focuses on a scheme for automated tumor recognition using images acquired during endoscopic sessions. The proposed recognition system is based on multilayer feed forward neural networks (MFNNs) and uses texture information encoded with corresponding statistical measures that are fed as input to the MFNN. Experiments were performed for recognition of different types of tumors in various images and also a number of sequentially acquired frames. The recognition of a polypoid tumor of the colon in the original image, which were used for training was very high. The trained network was also able to satisfactorily recognize the tumor in a sequence of video frames. The results of the proposed approach were very promising and it seems that it can be efficiently applied for tumor recognition.
