             abstract = "In hospital practice, several diagnostic hysteroscopy videos are 
                         produced daily. These videos are continuous (non-interrupted) 
                         video sequences, usually recorded in full. However, only a few 
                         segments of the recorded videos are relevant from the 
                         diagnosis/prognosis point of view, and need to be evaluated and 
                         referenced later. This paper proposes a new technique to identify 
                         clinically relevant segments in diagnostic hysteroscopy videos, 
                         producing a rich and compact video summary which supports fast 
                         video browsing. Also, our approach facilitates the selection of 
                         representative key-frames for reporting the video contents in the 
                         patient records. The proposed approach requires two stages. 
                         Initially, statistical techniques are used for selecting relevant 
                         video segments. Then, a post-processing stage merges adjacent 
                         video segments that are similar, reducing temporal video 
                         over-segmentation. Our preliminary experimental results indicate 
                         that our method produces compact video summaries containing a 
                         selection of clinically relevant video segments. These 
                         experimental results were validated by specialists.",
