Numerous soft computing techniques are used nowadays to analyze medical images, and diagnosis of disease is computerized. This paper compares the performance of Weighted Artificial Bee Colony and Particle Swarm Optimization in the diagnosis of dementia using MRI images. For analysis, cross-sectional MRI of 235 subjects collected from OASIS is used. By adjusting the weights for both optimization techniques in a proper manner, optimized results can be reached. These techniques classify the cross-sectional image into three categories and give almost equal Goodness Detection Ratio of 78% along with different regression ratios.
