Abstract
The use of image intensity based segmentation techniques are proposed to improve MRI contrast and provide greater confidence levels in 3-D visualization of pathology. Pattern recognition methods are proposed using both supervised and unsupervised methods. This paper emphasizes the practical problems in the selection of training data sets for supervised methods that result in instability in segmentation. An unsupervised method, namely fuzzy c- means, that does not require training data sets and produces comparable results is proposed.
