Abstract. This paper present the details of participation of DEMIR  (Dokuz Eylul University Multimedia Information  Retrieval) research team to the context of our participation to the ImageCLEF 2011 Medical Retrieval task.  This year, we evaluated fusion and re-ranking method which is based on the best low level feature of images with best text retrieval result. We improved results by examination of different weighting models for retrieved text data and low level features. We tested multi–modality image retrieval in ImageCLEF 2011 medical retrieval task and obtained the best seven ranks in mixed retrieval, which includes textual and visual modalities. The results clearly show that proper fusion of different modalities improve the overall retrieval performance.
