Abstract
The population is aging as the years pass. There is an increase in life expectancy, but also a decrease in the quality of life for the presence of chronic degenerative diseases. Processing medical images can identify brain changes typical of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) at an early stage. We propose a new method of segmentation technique using Mean Shift algorithm applying probabilistic maps and Support Vector Machine with Linear and Radial Basis Kernel for segmentation of the hippocampus on Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI). The similarity index of DICE for a 8 control subject was calculated obtaining a mean value of 0:7053±0:0996 using Linear kernel and 0:7275±0:1335 using RBF kernel compared with the manual segmentation made by radiologist.
