Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences, 2008, 3(10), 792-795.


Segmentation of images is the key step in image analysis. This study deals with Brain Magnetic Resonance Image segmentation. Any medical image of human being consists of distinct regions. These regions could be represented by Wavelet Coefficients. Classification of these features may be performed using Fuzzy Clustering Method (FCM-Fuzzy C-Means Algorithm). Edge detection technique is used to detect the edges of the given images. Silhouette method is used to find the strength of clusters. Finally, the different regions of the images are demarcated and color coded.
