An improved main color histogram method and improved edge histogram for tongue diagnosis
in the Chinese traditional medicine are proposed in Section 3.

The identification of tongue body and coating is an important procedure in tongue diagnosis
since it is the premise for analyzing the color and texture features of body and coating.
can serve as an effective and noninvasive means of examination to decrease the examination time and cost, increase the ability of diagnosis and the reliability of prognosis.
There are many different TCM schools that have their own point of view on the tongue diagnosis
. Also, TCM diagnoses are not applicable in Western medicine because of the unique words used to describe the disease.
Although tongue diagnosis
can help show you where problems might be, seek advice from your doctor to rule out wider health problems.
is an important diagnostic method for examining patient conditions in clinical practice.
Inspired by the works of deep learning models and their variants, this paper proposes a framework referred to as constrained high dispersal neural networks (CHDNet) based on PCA convolutional kernels to aid in tongue diagnosis
. The proposed CHDNet learns useful features from the clinical data in an unsupervised way, and, with these obtained features, a supervised machine-learning technique is used to learn how to partition a patient's health status into normal or abnormal states.
A tongue image was acquired after the diagnostic process using a tongue diagnosis
system (TDS), which provides feedback during the image acquisition process and a color checker for color correction, as shown in Figures 1(a) and 1(c) .
Previous reports have described the interobserver reliability of pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis
, and PI for stroke patients [5-9].
