Abstract
An image segmentation algorithm based on back-propagation neural network with robust supervised training, is presented. Using this algorithm it is possible to do brain MRI segmentation with good resolution between white and gray matter and recognition of some structures. Initial weight parameter evaluation takes fair amount of computational time resulting in a fast slice segmentation once the network has been trained. The training step consists of choosing a set of optimal weights for interchanging network nodes such that when the values of gray level patterns are presented to the network, it classifies them for different tissue types.
