The tumor volume is a significant prognostic factor in the treatment of malignant tumors. Manual segmentation of brain tumors from MR images is a challenging and time consuming task. A semi-automated region growing segmentation method is proposed to segment brain tumor from MR images. The proposed method can successfully segment a tumor provided that the parameters are set properly. This method is applied to 8-tumor contained MRI slices from 2 brain tumor patients’ and satisfactory segmentation results are achieved.
Keywords: Brain tumor, MRI, imaging, segmentation.
