Brain Tumor Segmentation Using MS Algorithm

Abstract

In this paper we developed Brain tumor techniques using tomography, such as MRI (Magnetic Resonance images) provide a plethora of pathophysiological tissue information that assists the clinician in diagnosis, therapy design/monitoring and surgery. Robust segmentation of brain tissues is a very important task in order to perform a number of computational tasks including morphological measurements of brain structures, automatic detection of asymmetries and pathologies, and simulation of brain tissue growth. In this paper we present brain structure segmentation results based on our implementation of the mean-shift algorithm and compare them with a number of well-known brain-segmentation algorithms using an atlas dataset as ground truth. The results indicate that the mean-shift algorithm outperforms the other methods. Last, the value of this algorithm in automatic detection of abnormalities in brain images is also investigated.
