Helix Distinction: Wide vs. Narrow

The helix is located in the upper portion of the ear that consists of cartilage and resembles a y-shaped curve (see diagram of ear below).

For feature extraction to analyze the helix portion of the ear we created two categories of helix; wide or narrow. We distinguish between the two categories through looking at the amount of cartilage contained in the sample. Sample images where the helix seems to have a lot of cartilage are considered wide whereas helixes that are small and the outer rim is very defined are considered narrow in our classifier.
