An Improved Implementation of Brain Tumor Detection Using Segmentation Based on Hierarchical Self Organizing Map

T. Logeswari and M. Karnan
Abstract—Image segmentation denotes a process of partitioning an image into distinct regions. A large variety of different segmentation approaches for images have been developed. Among them, the clustering methods have been extensively investigated and used. In this paper, a clustering based approach using a Self Organizing Map (SOM) algorithm is proposed for medical image segmentation . This paper describe segmentation method consists of two phases. In the first phase, the MRI brain image is acquired from patient database. In that film artifact and noise are removed. In the second phase (MR) image segmentation is to accurately identify the principal tissue structures in these image volumes. A new unsupervised MR image segmentation method based on fuzzy C-Means clustering algorithm for the Segmentation is presented

Index Terms—Image analysis, Segmentation, HSOM, Fuzzy C-Means, Tumor detection
