Survey of Brain Tumor Segmentation Techniques on Magnetic Resonance Imaging  

Messaoud Hameurlaine, Abdelouahab Moussaoui


Brain tumor extraction is challenging task because brain image and its structure are complicated that can be analyzed only by expert physicians or radiologist. Brain tumor detection and segmentation is one of the most challenging and time consuming task in medical image processing. The image segmentation is a very difficult job in the image processing and challenging task for clinical diagnostic tools. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a visualization medical technique, which provides plentiful information about the human soft tissue, which helps in the diagnosis of brain tumor. Accurate segmentation of the MRI images is extremely important and essential for the exact diagnosis by computer aided clinical tools. There are different types of segmentation algorithms for MRI brain images. This paper is to check existing approaches of Brain tumor segmentation techniques in MRI image for Computer aided diagnosis.
