Basic aim of our study is to analyze the medical image. In computer vision, segmentationRefers to the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple regions. The goal ofSegmentation is to simplify and/or change the representation of an image into something thatIs more meaningful and easier to analyze. Image segmentation is typically used to locateObjects and boundaries (lines, curves, etc.) in images.There is a lot of scope of the analysis that we have done in our project; our analysis couldBe used for the purpose of monitoring the medical image. Medical imaging refers to theTechniques and processes used to create images of the human body (or parts thereof) forClinical purposes (medical procedures seeking to reveal, diagnose or examine disease) orMedical science (including the study of normal anatomy and function).As a discipline and in its widest sense, it is part of biological imaging and incorporatesRadiology (in the wider sense), radiological sciences, endoscopy, (medical) thermography, Medical photography and microscopy (e.g. for human pathological investigations).Measurement and recording techniques which are not primarily designed to produce images.
