An enhanced medical decision support system for classification of Ultrasound Kidney images is developed for health care and presented in this paper. The image enhancement was done by removing the speckle, salt and pepper noises using fuzzy c means filtering and the Gray Level Coocurrence Matrix was obtained for feature extraction. Gabor wavelets and Histogram equalization were used for the selection of texture features. The classification is done using SVM, ANN, K-NN and Hybrid classifiers and the accuracy of classification was found to be 99.6% for the SVM- ANN hybrid classifier. The developed system is expected to provide support for the medical practitioners for decision making to provide an enhanced health care.
