Gaussian mixture model based segmentation methods for brain MRI images
- 915 Downloads
Image segmentation is at a preliminary stage of inclusion in diagnosis tools and the accurate segmentation of brain MRI images is crucial for a correct diagnosis by these tools. Due to in-homogeneity, low contrast, noise and inequality of content with semantic; brain MRI image segmentation is a challenging job. A review of the Gaussian Mixture Model based segmentation algorithms for brain MRI images is presented. The review covers algorithms for segmentation algorithms and their comparative evaluations based on reported results.
