Multiparameter segmentation and quantization of brain tumor from MRI images.


In this paper, a method for segmentation of brain tumor has been developed on 2D-MRI data which allows the identification (10-15 minutes operator time) of tumor tissue with accuracy and reproducibility comparable to manual segmentation (2-6 hours operator time) making the automatic segmentation practical reality for malignant tumors. In this scheme, after a manual segmentation procedure the tumor identification has been made for the potential use of MRI data for improving the approximate brain tumor shape and 2D visualization for surgical planning.
