As coursework for my computer vision class in Leuven I looked into support vector machines on medical data. The task was to locate incisor teeth.
For every window the svm generates the probabilities for a miss and hit. In this example the frame with the largest hit probability was chosen, as all images where known to contain incisors somewhere.
