    We present a probabilistic approach to the medical retrieval task. We experimented with the Westerveld method [1] to obtain our results for ImageCLEF. In addition to these results we describe our findings of involving a medical expert in our research. The expert helped us identifying useful image retrieval applications and reflected upon the setup of ImageCLEF’s medical task. Finally we describe the evaluation of an interactive implementation of the probabilistic approach.
