Automated classification of brain images using wavelet-energy and biogeography-based optimization

It is very important to early detect abnormal brains, in order to save social and hospital resources. The wavelet-energy was a successful feature descriptor that achieved excellent performances in various applications; hence, we proposed a novel wavelet-energy based approach for automated classification of MR brain images as normal or abnormal. SVM was used as the classifier, and biogeography-based optimization (BBO) was introduced to optimize the weights of the SVM. The results based on a 5 × 5-fold cross validation showed the performance of the proposed BBO-KSVM was superior to BP-NN, KSVM, and PSO-KSVM in terms of sensitivity and accuracy. The study offered a new means to detect abnormal brains with excellent performance.
