—In this paper, we proposed the new texture features called Haralick in Contourlet Sub-bands based Feature- HCSF-for 2D bone structure evaluation. Our proposed bone texture features are built on co-occurrences matrix for outside wedges and Gabor features for coarsest level of contourlet transform. The classification experiments are tested with linear SVM engine and the precision ratio is 70%. The proposed method is also compared to SFTA algorithm, Haralick, and Gabor features. The classification precision of proposed method is always higher than those in the related methods.
