A MULTILEVEL BRAIN TUMOR SEGMENTATION METHOD

Shibin Tomy Mathew, Dr. Amit Garg.

Abstract
Brain tumor is a life threatening condition triggered by irregular cell development in the brain.
Brain tumors are diagnosed and treated on the basis of their clinical signs and their radiological presentation.
Magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI) is a non-invasive modality used to detect pathological brain tumors
structure.Segmentation of brain tumor in MR images plays a vital role in extracting tumor region from complex
medical images.The objective of the proposed method is to effectively segment brain tumor from MRI images
and to evaluate the performance using different validation measure such as accuracy, sensitivity and specificity.
Segmentation using proposed method is done by preprocessing the MRI image to enhance the quality of the
MRI images followed by a multiple kernel based fuzzy c-means approach for the segmentation of the tumor. A
Grab Cut algorithm is also included in the proposed method for clearer visualization of the tumor. Experiments
have been performed on a set of clinical MRI using Matlab2017b software. The performance of the proposed
method has been compared with two other methods i.e. Fuzzy C-Means and Kernel based Fuzzy C-Means
algorithm (KFCM). Validation results clearly represents that the proposed method demonstrates superior
performance in comparison to other methods for brain tumor segmentation.

Key words: Brain tumor, MRI, Segmentation
