Review on MRI Brain Tumor Segmentation

Abstract:

Article Preview

Accurate segmentation of brain tumor from MRI is crucial in computer aided diagnosis as well as in other medical imaging applications. Brain tumor segmentation is a challenging task due to the diverse appearance of tumor tissues. A variety of brain tumor segmentation techniques have been explored in the literature. Here, a brief review of different brain tumor segmentation techniques has been discussed with their merits and demerits. We conclude with a discussion on the trend of future research in brain tumor segmentation.
