Feature dimensionality reduction problem is a major issue in Content Based Medical Image Retrieval (CBMIR) for the effective management of medical images with the support of visual features for the purpose of diagnosis and educational research field. The proposed CBMIR is used a unified approach based on extraction of visual features, optimized feature selection, classification of optimized features and similarity measurements. The Texture features are selected using Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM), Tamura Features (TF) and Gabor Filter (GF) in which pull out of features are formed a feature vector database. Fuzzy based PSO (FPSO) is applied for Feature selection to overcome the difficulty of feature vectors being surrounded in local optima of original PSO. This procedure also integrates a smart policymaking structure of ACO procedure into the novel FPSO where the global optimum position to be exclusive for every feature particle. The Fuzzy based Particle Swarm Optimization and Ant Colony Optimization (FPSO-ACO) technique is used to trim down the feature vector dimensionality and classification is accomplished using an extensive Fuzzy based Relevance Vector Machine (FRVM) to form collections of relevant image features that would provide an accepted way to classify dimensionally concentrated feature vectors of images. The Euclidean Distance (ED) is recognized as finest for similarity measurement between the medical query image and the medical image database. This proposed approach can acquire the query from the user and had retrieved the desired images from the database. The retrieval performance would be assessed based on precision and recall. This proposed CBMIR is used to provide comfort to the physician to obtain more assurance in their decisions for diagnosis and research students of medicine are keenness to get the crucial images fruitfully for additional investigation of their exploration.
